EXAM 1 How does the average speed of air molecules influence the atmosphere It determines the air temperature In general where in the troposphere is the temperature the coldest At the tropopause The altitude of the tropopause varies with latitude As a result the deepest storms are likely to develop where In the tropics In the troposphere pressure DECREASES with height and temperature DECREASES with height Which of the following is a typical range of sea level pressure values found in mis latitude 980mb to 1045mb What are clouds composed of Liquid water and Ice crystals What term describes the pressure at which the air contains the max amount of water vapor possible for the observed temperature and pressure Saturation vapor pressure What term describes the amount of water in the atmosphere compared to the atmospheric capacity for moisture at a given temperature Relative humidity What term described the lowest temperature to which air can be cooled at a constant pressure before saturation occurs Dewpoint temperature What are two absolute measures of the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere Dew point temperature and vapor pressure If the vapor pressure is equal to the saturation vapor pressure which of the following is true 1 The air is saturated 2 The relative humidity is 100 As the air temperature increases and the actual amount of water vapor in the air remain constant the saturation vapor pressure will Increase As the air temperature increases and the actual amount of water vapor in the air remain constant the relative humidity will Decrease As the air temperature increases and the actual amount of water vapor in the air remain constant the vapor pressure will Remain constant When water changes from liquid to gas latent heat is absorbed from the surroundings cooling the surroundings Which location has the most water vapor in the air New York Which location has the higher saturation vapor pressure Both have the same Winds in the station model would be
