Question

**How do we know the temperature of the microwave
background radiation, i.e. what did we measure? Will the
temperature go up or down or not change in the coming billion
years.**

Answer #1

Absolute Radiometer

The Absolute Radiometer for Cosmology, Astrophysics, and Diffuse Emission (ARCADE) is a balloon-borne instrument to measure the temperature of the cosmic microwave background at centimeter wavelengths.

The actual temperature of the cosmic microwave background is 2.725 Kelvin. The middle image pair show the same map displayed in a scale such that blue corresponds to 2.721 Kelvin and red is 2.729 Kelvin.

The CMB is visible at a distance of 13.8 billion light years in all directions from Earth, leading scientists to determine that this is the true age of the Universe.

why is there constant temperature and pressure at equilibrium?
how do we know this

(At least) How many times did endoskeletons arise, and how do we
know? (Topic: Deuterostomes/Echinoderms)

How do we measure inequality and what has happened to inequality
in the US over the last 25 years?

How do we know how many genes control development in an organism
like Drosophila? And how did we discover that selector
genes specify which adult structures will be formed by body
segments? Additionally, how do we know that eye formation in all
animals is controlled by a binary switch gene?

3. What is the Lernerís index of market power? How do we measure
it?

What is the most important property of an estimator? How do we
normally measure that property?

What is the Lorenz curve? How do we measure inequity using the
Lorenz curve?

What is inflation and how do we measure it? Which prices does
each of the major price indexes actually measure? How can a price
index be used to convert nominal output into real output?

You have a coin (that we do not know is biased or not) that has
a probability "p" of coming up Heads (which may be different than
1/2). Suppose you toss this coin repeatedly until you observe 1
Head. What is the expected number of times you have to toss it?

Define rate of change. Do you know any data from which we can
clearly figure out the rate of change? For example, if we examine
the data for the size of an apartment and its monthly rent in the
City, can we calculate the rate of change, i.e., how much we pay
per square foot?
