Unformatted text preview: o C/100m) we find that the ambient lapse rate is less than the adiabatic lapse rate, therefore the atmosphere is unstable. (3) dT/dZ = (17.93 o C)(18.55 o C )/(339m8m) = 0.001873 o C /m Therefore the ambient lapse rate is –0.187 o C/100 m Comparing with adiabatic lapse rate (i.e., 1 o C/100m) we find that the ambient lapse rate is greater than the adiabatic lapse rate, therefore the atmosphere is stable. 2.
