  1. a an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
  2. b The way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.
  3. c forms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up
  4. d an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
  5. e Area of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. the weight of the air above an object
  2. moving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation
  3. Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
  4. the resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
  5. a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout

5 True/False Questions

  1. HighArea of high pressure where wind will move away from, associated with dry and nice weather and air that is sinking

          

  2. aneroid barometerAn instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.
