## Solutions

##### Exercise 1

Write a C program that convert a temperature from Centigrade to Fahrenheit.

The centigrade scale, which is also called the Celsius scale, was developed by Swedish astronomer Andres Celsius. In the centigrade scale, water freezes at 0 degrees and
boils at 100 degrees. The centigrade to Fahrenheit conversion formula is:

C = (5/9) * (F - 32)

where F is the Fahrenheit temperature.

**Sample Solution**

C Code:

#include<stdio.h>

float temp_f; /* degrees fahrenheit */

float temp_c; /* degrees centigrade */

char line_text[50]; /* a line of input */

int main(){

printf("Input a temperature (in Centigrade): ");

fgets(line_text,sizeof(line_text), stdin);

sscanf(line_text,"%f",&temp_c);

temp_f =((9.0/5.0)* temp_c)+32.0;

printf("%f degrees Fahrenheit.\n", temp_f);

return(0);

}

Sample Output:

Input a temperature (in Centigrade): 45

113.000000 degrees Fahrenheit.

##### Exercise 2

Write a C program that calculates the volume of a sphere.

A sphere is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space that is the surface of a completely round ball.

In three dimensions, the volume inside a sphere is derived
to be V = 4/3*π*r3 where r is the radius of the sphere

**Sample Solution**

C Code:

#include<stdio.h>

float myradius; /* radius of the sphere */

float myvolume; /* volume of the sphere (to be computed) */

char line_text[50]; /* a line from the keyboard */

/* the value of pi to 50 places, from wikipedia */

constfloat PI =3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510;

int main(){

printf("Input the radius of the sphere : ");

fgets(line_text,sizeof(line_text), stdin);

sscanf(line_text,"%f",&myradius);

myvolume =(4.0/3.0)* PI *(myradius * myradius * myradius);/* volumn=(4/3) * pi * r^3*/

printf("The volume of sphere is %f.\n", myvolume);

return(0);

}

Sample Output:

Input the radius of the sphere: 2.56

The volume of sphere is 70.276237.

printf("Input the height of the Rectangle : ");

sscanf(line_text,"%f",&rec_height);

printf("Input the width of the Rectangle : ");

sscanf(line_text,"%f",&rec_width);

rec_perimeter =2.0*(rec_height + rec_width);/* perimeter = 2 * ( width + height )*/

printf("Perimeter of the Rectangle is : %f\n", rec_perimeter);

return0;

Sample Output:

Input the height of the Rectangle: 5

Input the width of the Rectangle: 7

Perimeter of the Rectangle is: 24.000000

int main()

{

printf("Input kilometers per hour: ");

fgets(line_text, sizeof(line_text), stdin);

sscanf(line_text,"%f",&kmph);

miph =(kmph *0.6213712);
