In a simple model of the wind speed associated with hurricane Emily, we assume there is calm eye 10.0 km in radius. The winds, which extend to a height of 5550 m, begin with a speed of 208.0 km/hr at the eye wall and decrease linearly with radial distance down to 0 km/hr at a distance of 150.0 km from the center. Assume the average density of the air from sea level to an altitude of 5550 m is 0.891 kg/m3. Calculate the total kinetic energy of the winds.
