Python Math: Calculate wind chill index

Python Math: Exercise-29 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate wind chill index.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import math
v = float(input("Input wind speed in kilometers/hour: "))
t = float(input("Input air temperature in degrees Celsius: "))
wci = 13.12 + 0.6215*t -  11.37*math.pow(v, 0.16) + 0.3965*t*math.pow(v, 0.16)
print("The wind chill index is", int(round(wci, 0)))

Sample Output:

Input wind speed in kilometers/hour: 120                                                                      
Input air temperature in degrees Celsius: 35                                                                  
The wind chill index is 40
