Atmospheric Dynamics

In his publication, John eco-friendly provides a special own perception into the basics of fluid mechanics and atmospheric dynamics. Generations of scholars have benefited from his lectures, and this publication, decades within the making, is the results of his large instructing and learn adventure. the speculation of fluid stream has constructed to such an quantity that very advanced arithmetic and types are at present used to explain it, yet some of the primary effects keep on with from fairly easy concerns: those vintage ideas are derived the following in a unique, certain, and every now and then even idiosyncratic, method.

Example text

Are the raindrops that fall during a brief shower larger than those that fall in a long, steady rain? How many average-size raindrops are in a snowflake? In a hailstone? 5 The Shape of Raindrops Materials: vacuum cleaner that will blow air food coloring water small glass eyedropper Ping-Pong ball When raindrops fall in still air, they fall at a steady speed. This steady speed is called the terminal velocity of the raindrops. As you might guess, big drops have a higher terminal velocity than small drops.

Can you explain any differences in temperature that you find at these various levels? Measure the temperature near the floor of a room. Then measure the temperature near the ceiling. How do these two temperatures compare? Can you explain any difference in temperature that you find at these different levels in the room? 4 How Does the Sun's Position Affect Temperature? Materials: flashlight globe Those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere are closer to the sun in winter than we are in summer.

Watch a drop closely as it falls into water. You may be able to see a jet of water rise up above the point where the drop lands. To see such a jet, use an eyedropper to release a drop into a glassful of water. Adding food coloring to the water will help you see the drop. Hold a ruler next to the glass. How far do the drops have to fall before they produce jets? It takes place so fast that you won’t be able to see all that happens, but you can see the jets and the tiny drop that breaks off from the top of the jet.
