7.1 HW: Phillips

vocab, 15 questions 7.1, and 5 questions(chapters 1-6)*relate to 7.1

QuestionAnswer
VOCAB 7.1: 1.)weather is the atmospheric conditions, along with short-term changes, of a certain place at a certain time.
2.)air pressure the pressure that a column of air exerts on the air, or surface, below.
3.)relative humidity the amount of water vapor present in the air compared to the maximum amount of water vapor the air could contain at that temperature.
4.)dew point is the temperature at which air is fully saturated because of decreasing temperatures while holding the amount of moisture constant.
5.)precipitation is water, in liquid or solid form, that falls from the atmosphere.
6.)the water cycle is the series of natural processes in which water continually moves among oceans, land, and the atmosphere.
7.)humidity the amount of water vapor in the air.
