1. Regarding only using 4 sheets, What does no annotations affixed mean? The instructions are vague, I don't understand if we can add our own things like pop-outs/glue-on?
2. Why do we need calculators?

Thanks,

1. Okay, I'm not sure, but I think it's where the sheet protectors themselves can't have notes.
2. We need calculators to calculate like ablation and accumulation zones, I think.

On second note, could you elaborate what you mean by calculating ablation and accumulation zones?

Does anyone know what the range of scores was for Dynamic at the MIT invitational?

I don't know the range of scores, but I can tell you that the highest score was 80.5. So try to beat that

So I'm at a dilemma for this event. Using the resources I have, I can sweep through most tests I've taken, but if it comes to something like the MIT test, I can't do much. What are some good resources for the application based questions in Dynamic Planet?

Can you give an example? Probably the only thing you can study for there is having a thorough understanding of the topics the questions cover.

Using Clapeyron’s equation as guidance and assuming the enthalpy of fusion is similar for all types
of ice, which of the ice types is the most dense ice? Explain your reasoning.
(5 points)
Something like this would confuse me. How would I do this without explicitly knowing which ice type is the most dense?

This is a really random question that has more to do with Thermodynamics honestly

Clapeyron's equation states that the steepness (derivative) of the melting curve on a pressure-temperature graph is directly proportional to the density of ice. Using a phase diagram (?), I think you could locate the densest piece of ice

Ohh ok. That actually makes sense. Thanks for the help.
