| **The meteorological station monitors atmospheric pressure. The result of one measurement is an integer ranging from 720 to 780 mm Hg, which is recorded using the minimum possible number of bits. The station made 80 measurements. Determine the information volume of the observation results.**

Given: N from 720 to 780 K = 80 Solution: Determine the number of values to be encoded. These are 61 values. 780 – 719 = 61 The resulting number is uncertainty. 25 <61 <26 This means that 6 bits of information are required to encode one value using the Hartley formula. i = 6 bits 6 bits * 80 = 480 bits = 60 bytes of information.

Answer: 60 bytes of information
