T
F
The average sea level pressure is 1013.25mb
2.
T
F
A mercury barometer measures altitude
3.
T
F
The top of the atmosphere is at an average altitude of 80km
4.
T
F
The fraction of the atmosphere below the 500mb level is 50%
5.
T
F
An air mass is a large volume of air relatively uniform in
temperature and relative humidity
6.
T
F
Warm dry air is denser than cold dry air
7.
T
F
8.
T
F
The troposphere is denser in the summer than in the winter,
across the US
When cold air advection is present, the air pressure tendency is
9.
T
F
upward
Temperature, density, and pressure are the variables of state
10.
T
F
The air pressure inside and outside of a building is generally equal
11.
T
F
Air pressure decreases uniformly with height
12.
T
F
The lowest pressure in an L must be lower than the highest
pressure in a H on the same weather map
13.
T
F
Vertical pressure gradients are smaller than horizontal pressure
14.
T
F
The Ideal Gas Law can be written in the form p = ρRT
15.
T
F
Over land, annual precipitation equal annual evaporation
16.
T
F
When ice turns directly to a gas it is called deposition
17.
T
F
In a saturated parcel, if the temperature falls, so does the relative
humidity
18.
T
F
A relative humidity of 100% occurs when the temperature and the
dew point are equal
19.
T
F
20.
T
F
21.
T
F
A temperature inversion is characterized by a decrease in air
temperature with height
If the temperature remains constant with height, the profile is
called isothermal
A lapse rate of -8°C per 1000m is conditionally stable
22.
T
F
The dry adiabatic lapse rate is equal to -6.5°C per kilometer
23.
T
F
Unstable air suppresses vertical motion of air parcels
24.
T
F
Stable air spurs convection
25.
T
F
The leeward side of a mountain is wetter than the windward side
26.
T
F
During the winter, precipitable water is likely to be higher in Salt
Lake City than New Orleans
27.
T
F
The wet bulb depression is the difference between the dew point
and the air temperature
28.
T
F
The atmosphere would be absolutely stable if the lapse rate were
positive
29.
T
F
The relative humidity within a cloud is about 100%
30.
T
F
A cloud that develops as a result of convection is a stratus cloud
31.
T
F
A cirrus cloud will most likely be only composed of ice crystals
32.
T
F
Cumulonimbus clouds exhibit considerable vertical development
33.
T
F
Generally, a stratus cloud will be colder than a cirrus cloud
34.
T
F
Clear skies, strong winds, and low vapor pressure are required for

40.
T
F
Sleet can also be referred to as ice pellets
41.
T
