Map Assignment

Using the Hawaii, Hawaii map the gradient of Mauna Loa.
In order to do this, first place a straight edge object (e.g. ruler or piece of paper) on the map connecting the camp located in Section 5 to the patrol cabin at the top of Mauna Loa. Then using the statute miles scale bar, located at the bottom of the map, measure out 10 miles on a piece of paper.

place order

Next, starting at the 5,000’ contour line near the camp map location, measure out 10 miles (along the straight edge) using your scale markings on the piece of paper. Identify the elevation value at the end of your measurement.

Finally, using the gradient equation in the instruction, identify the gradient for Mauna Loa. You must show your work, using the equation in the instructions, in order to receive full credit.

Using the Park City, Kentucky map, calculate the gradient of Bald Knob.
In order to do this, first place a straight edge object (e.g. ruler or piece of paper) on the map connecting Dome House Cave to the Golf Course. Then using the statute miles scale bar, located on the bottom of the map, measure out 1/5th of a mile (2 boxes to the left of 0) on a piece of paper.

Next, starting at the 800’ contour line near Dome House Cave, measure out 1/5th of a mile (along the straight edge) using your scale markings on the piece of paper. Identify the elevation value at the end of your measurement.

Finally, using the gradient equation in the instruction, identify the gradient for Bald Knob. You must show your work, using the equation in the instructions, in order to receive full credit.

Using the Mono Crater, California map, calculate the gradient of Mount Lewis.
In order to do this, first place a straight edge object (e.g. ruler or piece of paper) on the map connecting Summit Lake to Parker Lake. Then using the statute mile scale bar, located on the bottom of the map, measure out 1 mile on a piece of paper.

Next, starting at the 10,800’ contour line near Summit Lake, measure out 1 mile (along the straight edge) using your scale markings on the piece of paper. Identify the elevation value at the end of your measurement.

Finally, using the gradient equation in the instruction, identify the gradient for Mount Lewis. You must show your work, using the equation in the instructions, in order to receive full credit.
