Which natural phenomenon is the best example of periodic behavior?
A. Your average daily bank balance
B. The population of a city over time
C. The high temperature for a given city
D. The amount of pollution in Los Angeles as a function of time
Answer A, your average balance goes up and down as money comes in or payments go out.
The population may go up or down but not periodically
the high temp is during the summer, but not necessarily periodic
pollution seems to increase
I'm thinking it might be C. since a high temperature for a given city may be cyclic and predictable. Usually, the high temperature is recorded during the summer and since all seasons are repeated periodically and naturally, that would be the best example.
Every year in summer months temperature will go high.This is periodic behaviour.
C. The number of hours of daylight each day perfectly periodic......
