- Cold Front
- Coriolis Effect
- a an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
- 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.
- c forms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up
- d an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
- 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
- the weight of the air above an object
- moving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation
- Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
- the resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
- a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout
5 True/False Questions
High → Area of high pressure where wind will move away from, associated with dry and nice weather and air that is sinking
aneroid barometer → 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.
Front → a boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature
anemometer → a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout
Wind Vain → a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout
