The process by which water and water vapor emerge from layers deep within and below the crust is called
Hydrogen end = positively charged, Oxygen end = negatively charged
Hydrogen bonding results from the fact that
Water expands in volumes as it freezes
In winter, freezing water can break pipes and even crack engine blocks. How does this happen?
The amount of water vapor in the air at a given temperature expressed as a percentage of the water vapor capacity of the air is called:
Temperature of both the air and the water vapor
The capacity of the air to hold water vapor is basically a function of:
A sling psychrometer has two thermometers, one is called _________, and the other is called ________
The greater the difference in temperature between the wet bulb and dry bulb on a sling psychrometers, the ___ the air is and the ____ the relative humidity
The smaller the difference in temperature between wet bulb and dry bulb on a sling psychrometer, the _____ the air is and the ______ the air temperature is to dew-point.
The general term that refers to the tendency of a parcel of air to either remain in place of change its initial position is _________
Continues to rise until it reaches an altitude at which the surrounding air has a similar temperature
An air percale is considered unstable when it
When the environmental lapse rate is greater than the dry adiabatic lapse rate the atmospheric conditions are
When the environmental lapse rate is greater than the moisture adiabatic lapse rate and less than the dry adiabatic lapse rate, the atmospheric conditions are
When the environmental lapse rate is less than the moist adiabatic lapse rate, the atmospheric conditions are:
Less; condensation heats the air
The wet adiabatic lapse rate is ____ than the dry adiabatic lapse rate because ___________
The air is simultaneously being cooled by expansion and heated by condensation
Which of the following statements regarding rising air, in which dew point temperature has been reached is correct?
The principle process for raindrop formation in tropical warm clouds is:
