Geocache Description:


Update 2015-06-14:
New box (small) and new hide out, spoiler picture in checker

deutsche Beschreibung:

An den Headerkoordinaten befindet sich ein öffentlicher Parkplatz des größten Aluminiumkonzerns Österreichs.
Dieser bietet neben Primäraluminium noch weitere Aluminiumhalbzeugprodukte an.  

Um die Koordinaten des Cache zu ermitteln müssen folgende Fragen beantwortet werden (die Fragen 1 - 3 beziehen sich auf das Aluminiumwerk, die Fragen 4 - 7 beziehen sich auf das Element Aluminium). Für Antworten in Textform gilt die Quersumme der Buchstaben gemäß: a=1, b=2 ... z=26.

1. Wann wurde das Aluminiumwerk Ranshofen gegründet? - Antwort (4-stellig)=a (Quelle Wikipedia)

2. Wann wurde das Aluminiumwerk Ranshofen privatisiert? - Antwort (4-stellig)=b

3. Wie nennt sich nun das nach der Privatisierung ausgegliederte Presswerk (Abkürzung)? - Antwort=c

4. Welche Ordnungszahl hat das Element Aluminium im Periodensystem der Elemente? - Antwort=d

5. Bei welcher Temperatur in Kelvin [°K] liegt der Schmelzpunkt von reinem Aluminium (ganze Zahl, nicht gerundet)? - Antwort=e

6. Welche Aluminiumverbindung (nicht ganz ungefährlich) wird neben Bauxit bzw. Tonerde (Aluminiumoxid) für die (Primär-)aluminiumerzeugung verwendet? - Antwort (deutsche Schreibweise)=f

7. Wie viel Energie in kJ wird benötigt, um 1kg reines Aluminium zu schmelzen (Ausgangspunkt Raumtemperatur 20°C- Ganzzahl, ungerundet)? - Antwort =g


Cachekoordinaten:

N48°d.(e-b+a-f-50) + 30
E013°(f-c-99).((b-g)/2-8) + 74

   
Die Lösung des Rätsels kannst Du mit dem Checker (unten) überprüfen.

english description:

The header coordinates will show you a possible public parking possibility of Austrian's largest aluminium plant.
This plant offers primary aluminium as well as other aluminium semi finished products.

For calculation final coord's of the cache, you have to answer following questions (questions 1 - 3 refer to the aluminium plant, questions 4 - 7 refer to the element aluminium). If answers are alphanumerical you have to use the horizontal checksum, according to a=1, b=2 ... z=26

1. When was the aluminium plant in Ranshofen founded? - answer (4-digits)=a

2. When was the aluminium plant in Ranshofen passed into private hands? - answer (4-digits)=b

3. What is the name of the former extrusion plant after going-private (abbreviation)? -  answer=c

4. What is the atomic number of the element aluminium in periodic table of the elements? answer=d

5. What is the melting point of pure aluminium in Kelvin [°K] (truncated)? - answer=e

6. Which aluminium compound (a little bit harmful) besides bauxite resp. aluminium oxide is used for producing (primary-)aluminium? - answer (German translation is needed - maybe a translator has to be used)=f

7. How much energy in kJ has to be used for melting 1 kg of pure aluminium (reference point: room temperature. 20°C, truncated)? answer=g


Cache-coordinates:

N48°d.(e-b+a-f-50) + 30
E013°(f-c-99).((b-g)/2-8) + 74
