How do I find the weight in pounds of and bald eagle who's wing span is 7 feet. and my equation is L = 2.43 * W ^ 0.3326 to estimate the bird weight W in pounds, so how can I find out how much the 7 feet wing weigh in pound.

  • Algebra -

    Substitute L=7 to get
    7=2.43*W^0.3326
    W^0.3326=7/2.43=2.88
    log(W^0.3326)=log(2.88)
    0.3326log(W)=log(2.88)
    log(W)=log(2.88)/0.3326
    W=10^(log(2.88)/0.3326)
    =24 lbs
