# Kilauea erupts in Hawaii MAY 2018.

# The amazing maths of volcano eruptions.

Once lava flows are established new RIVERLETS can run on top of the original lava flow at great speed.

The fastest Lava flows recorded were in Hawaii in 1950 when Mauna Loa erupted. The lava traveled at 6 miles (10 kilometers) per hour through thick forest. But once the lava flows became established and good channels developed, the lava in the channels was flowing at up to 60 miles/hour (97 kph)

# Can you out run a lava flow?

**You are 2 km from the volcano rim and start running.**

**V**_{L} = 97 kph = 1.6 km per minute (k/min)

** = 60 mph**

**V**_{H} = 18 kph = 0.3 km/min

** = 11.2 mph (miles per hr )**

# The Complaint

## 8c: I Will Never Use this Maths

**The Solution:**

## You are going to use this maths NOW……………..

……………………………………………………………………..

# How much alcohol will kill you?

## TOPICS: Decimals, %, algebra, vol, weight units (Metric)

At low levels of consumption alcohol impairs decision making and inhibits coordination. It makes you DUMB and CLUMSY, which can cause serious injuries if you, say, fall down stairs.

Legal Age to Buy or Sell Alcohol USA: 21 years

Legal Age to Buy or sell Alcohol AUST, NZ & UK: 18 Years

Legal Age to Buy or sell Alcohol CANADA: 18 – 19 Years depending on region.

At higher levels of consumption ALCOHOL can kill. It is a depressant. It acts on your central nervous system. It can STOP YOU BREATHING.

WORKSHEET PDF: ** How Much Alcohol Would Kill You? WORKSHEET**

**WORKED EXAMPLE**

**1. Calculate the weight of (pure) alcohol or ethanol in the following standard drinks using the following information:**

Now Ethanol = **0.79** gm/ml

## METRIC UNITS below. USA UNITS here.

# BEAR STATISTICS

# Grizzly Bear

**Weight: 250kg**

**Height: 250cm**

**Top Speed: 56kph = 16 m/sec**

**More bear stats here. **

# Brown Bear

**Weight: 680kg**

**Height: 250cm**

**Top Speed: 35kph = 10m/s**

**More bear stats here.**

**Comparing these speeds to the fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt:**

# Usain Bolt:

**Top speed: 243kph = 12m/s**

**So Usain Bolt could out run a Brown Bear but NOT a Grizzly!**

# Bears are NOT as dangerous as:

**In fact more Americans die choking on their own vomit each year than a re killed by bears.**

**More death stats here.**

**But bears are very fast so Park Rangers recommend the following survival tactics:**
