# Solving Radical Equations

**Question description**

50. The equation v+k(f=2)3/2 can be used to determine a tornado's minimum wind velocity v in miles per hour, where k is a constant and f is the tornado's category number the fijuta scale.

A. Based on the info, what is the value of constant k?

B. What would be the minimum wind velocity of an f6 tornado?

C. Winds on Neptune can reach velocities of more than 600 mi?h. Use the equation given above to determine the Fujita category on this wind velocity.
