    Default Hurricane java Code

    I'm taking a really vague online computer science course, and am very confused on the following assignment. The lessons are only a few pages long and do not fully explain the topic completely.

    This is the assignment:
    Write a program to calculate the average category, pressure, and wind speed of all Atlantic Hurricanes that have occurred from 1980 - 2006. Also tally the number of storms in each category.
    I'm really confused, the following is the starter code given to me.

    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.io.File;
    import java.io.IOException;
     
    public class Hurricanes2
    {
        public static void main(String[] args)throws IOException
        {
        	//declare and initialize variables
     
     
    		int arrayLength = 59;
            int [] year = new int[arrayLength];
            String [] month = new String[arrayLength];
     
     
     
            File fileName = new File("hurcdata2.txt");
            Scanner inFile = new Scanner(fileName);
     
            //INPUT  - read data in from the file
            int index = 0;
            while (inFile.hasNext())
            {
                year[index] = inFile.nextInt();
                month[index] = inFile.next();
                index++;
            }
            inFile.close();
     
     
    		//PROCESSING - calculate and convert values
    		// convert windspeed from knots to MPH
    		// determine category
    		// count number of each category
     
     
            //Find min, max and average for category, windspeed and pressure
     
     
     
            //Output - print table using printf to format the columns
     
     
            System.out.println("                      Hurricanes 1980 - 2006");
            System.out.println();
            System.out.println("Year     Hurricane    Category     Pressure (mb)     Wind Speed (mph)");
            System.out.println("=====================================================================");
     
     
     
            System.out.println("=====================================================================");
     
     
     
        }//end main()
    }//end Hurricanes2

    Default Re: Hurricane java Code

    You need to ask a specific question. You have posted the assignment, the code and the data set. From that I can only assume that you are hoping someone to do the work for you.
