PHYS0629/PHYS1056 Weather and Climate Test Suggested Solution 1. Answer: (a) Standard book work. (b) If temperature increase is not large, saturation vapor pressure increases, absolute humidity increases, mixing ratio increases, relative humidity remains the same, 100%, dew-point temperature increases (with the temperature). If the temperature goes up to the point that all liquid water is vaporized, saturation vapor pressure increases, absolute humidity remains the same, mixing ratio remains the same, relative humidity decreases, dew-point temperature remains the same. 2. Answer: (a) wind to be deflected to the right [4 marks] wind speed unchanged [4 marks] vanishes at equator but at maximum at North Pole [4 marks] (b) wind to be deflected to the left [4 marks] wind speed unchanged [3 marks] vanishes at equator but at maximum at South Pole [3 marks] (c) (i) cyclonic or anti-clockwise [2 marks] (ii) low pressure system [2 marks] (iii) in between [2 marks] (iv) Northern-Hemisphere [2 marks] (v) right [2 marks]

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
