What is wind?

100

________ takes up space and has mass.

What is air?

200

The process when liquid water is heated by the Sun and changes from a liquid to a gas (water vapor).

What is evaporation?

200

Weather happens in this layer of the atmosphere.

What is the troposphere?

200

Energy transferred in waves or rays from the Sun to Earth is called _______.

What is radiation?

200

These types of currents create wind.

What are convection current?

200

Air is mostly made up of these two gases.

What are nitrogen and oxygen?

300

The product of the condensation of water vapor causing it to fall to the ground in the form of rain, hail, snow, or sleet.

What is precipitation?

300

Humidity is the amount of what in the air?

What is water?

300

One variable that has different energy absorbing properties are types of materials. Name 2 types of materials that absorb energy at different rates.

What are water and land (soil)?

300

The circulation of air caused by the rising and falling of heated particles. Also, causes wind.

What are convection currents?

300

This is a measure of how hot the air is.

What is temperature?

400

The process by which water vapor in the air is changed into liquid water. This also produces clouds.

What is condensation?

400

________________ is the long term average of weather in an area over time.

What is climate?

400

Name the 5 variables that effect temperature.

What are color, materials, angle of exposure, length of exposure, and intensity of exposure?

400

This weather event is caused when extreme differences between warm and cold air masses meet.

What is a tornado?

400

Air is made up of ____________ so they can be compressed and separated by heat.

What are particles?

500

The process in which water particles are taken in by plants and then escape into the air through holes in the leaves is called ________.

What is transpiration?

500

_________ is the state of the atmosphere at one given time. This can change rapidly and be varied from one day to the next.

What is weather?

500

This is when energy transfers from one place to another by contact.

What is conduction?

500

During what time of day does a convection current flow from the ocean to the land?

What is in the day time or when the Sun is up?

500

___________ is the gaseous state of water and is in the air.

What is water vapor?
