Problem 2509. Wind Chill Computation

Created by Prof. Joe Hummel

On a windy day, a temperature of 15 degrees may feel colder, perhaps 7 degrees. The formula below calculates the "wind chill," indicating the temperature that is felt based on the actual temperature (T, in Fahrenheit) and wind speed (W, in miles per hour):

windChill = 35.7 + 0.6T - 35.7W^0.16 + 0.43TW^0.16

Complete the function to compute wind chill. Note: While math notation uses abutment for multiplication, as in 5y, MATLAB requires use of * when multiplying items, as in 5*y.
