  5. Friction
  1. a the resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
  2. b Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
  3. c a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  4. d a front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow
  5. e an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the weight of the air above an object
  2. forms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up
  3. Area of high pressure where wind will move away from, associated with dry and nice weather and air that is sinking
  4. a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout
  5. narrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US

5 True/False questions

  1. Coriolis EffectThe way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.


  2. warm frontforms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up


  3. anemometeran instrument that measures wind speed


  4. Mercury Barometeran instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.


  5. FrontArea of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising
