Postby Johnny Lava » Sun Dec 06, 2009 6:41 am

This Volcano, located in South America had a famous recent eruption which began in 1963 and continued until 1965. It began on the day US President John F. Kennedy started a state visit to the country.

What is the name of this Volcano and in what country is it located?

I predict volcano 5 will be answered 10-11 minutes after posting... I found a formula that fits the trend pretty closely... try it out if you don't believe me. X in the equation is the number of the volcano, just plug in the volcano number and put it in google.


7.5137 + 2.8459*sin(1.45657*x) + 0.644572/sin(3.71265 + 1.42621*x) - 1.51289*sin(3.70109 + 1.45089*x) = amount in minutes that it takes to post the correct answer.

That equation is startlingly accurate! How did you discover it?

There was a program released by cornell called eureqa that finds relationships between data to find the trends by mutating equations and testing the results against the known data, I just plugged in the times and volcano numbers and ran it for about 30-45 mins and it found a few equations that were close.
