  3. c an instrument that measures wind speed
  4. d a body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout
  5. e an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing
  2. the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another
  3. forms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up
  4. a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  5. moving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation

5 True/False questions

  1. air pressurethe weight of the air above an object


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


  3. 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.


  4. pressure gradient forceAn 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. Jet Streamnarrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US
