5 Matching questions

  1. Wind Vain
  2. anemometer
  3. high
  4. Mercury Barometer
  5. Convection Current
  1. a an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing
  2. b an instrument that measures wind speed
  3. c the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another
  4. d an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
  5. e An 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.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. forms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up
  2. the weight of the air above an object
  3. an 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.
  4. 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. narrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US

5 True/False questions

  1. Frontan area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air


  2. 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.


  3. warm frontmoving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation


  4. Air Massa line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure


  5. Frictionthe resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
