What is the difference between a comet and asteroid

Comets have TAILS and coma. Also they are made of ice and gas. 

Asteroids are made of rock and metal. 

200

What needs to happen for water to evaporate?

Liquid water needs to be heat up by the sun and turn into water vapor

200
What is the name of the tool that measures humidity?

Hygrometer

What happens to climate when you are near a body of water?

Summers are cooler and winter is warmer

*STUDY FACTORS THAT AFFECT CLIMATE*

300

Which group of planets have the most moons and why? 

Outer planets because they are much larger therefore have a stronger gravitational pull

300

Name the 9 planets, in order.

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune

300

Over which body of water does most of evaporation occur? 

the ocean

300

What does fair weather mean? 

high pressure, no precipitation and little to no humidity

300

What are the three climate zones and what kind of weather is associated with each?

Tropic- hot all year round

Polar- cold all year round

Temperate- cold winters and hot summers

400

What saying do we use to help remember the order of the planets?

Between which two planets does the asteroid belt lie?

Mars and Jupiter

How does the water from the ocean end up in our lakes and streams? 

Water is evaporated from our oceans and creates clouds. Then wind moves the clouds over to land where it rains. 

400

What does low air pressure mean? 

Low= LOWSY. Rain, dark skies, a storm is coming


*STUDY THE 6 FACTORS OF WEATHER AND HOW THEY AFFECT WEATHER, EX. HIGH TEMPERATURE MEANS HOT WEATHER*

How does elevation affect climate? 

areas in higher elevation typically have cooler temperatures

500

Why do the inner planets have a shorter revolution? 

Since they are closer to the sun the distance traveled will be shorter

500

What are galaxies made of? 

stars, gas, dust, things that orbit stars

500

Why is Earths ocean so important? 

it stores most of Earths water and is also the main source of evaporated water. 

500

How is hail formed? 

during a storm, liquid water gets brought up to the top of a cloud from the high winds and freezes and then falls to the bottom of the cloud where it gets more layers of liquid water added and then the wind from the storm brings it back up to the cloud and this process keeps happening until the ball of ice is too large for the wind to pick it back up that it eventually falls as a ball of ice

What happens to the climate as you move away from the Equator?

The climate gets cooler as you move away from the Equator.
