6 Multiple choice questions

  1. a high pressure zone where wind blows outward and clockwise
  2. the amount of pressure exerted by weight of air
  3. upper atmosphere wind that separates cold air masses from warm air masses
  4. a low pressure zone where wind blows inward and counter clockwise
  5. air rises in a low pressure zone and condenses to form clouds, the temperature cools
  6. a cold polar air mass advances onto a warm air mass, cold dry stable air replaces warm, moist unstable maritime air, there is often precipitation behind the front

6 True/False questions

  1. what are differences in air pressure called?pressure gradients

          

  2. warm frontwarm moist tropical air replaces cold dry polar air, precipitation comes ahead of the front

          

  3. humiditythe amount of water vapor in the air

          

  4. how is air pressure affected?uneven heating from the sun

          

  5. what direction does air blow?air blows from high to low pressure

          

  6. coriolis effecta cold polar air mass advances onto a warm air mass, cold dry stable air replaces warm, moist unstable maritime air, there is often precipitation behind the front
