Unformatted text preview: T s = 0 o C, q s * = 3.75 g kg-1 , RH=50%; (b) T s = 0 o C, q s * = 3.75 g kg-1 , RH=100%; (a) T s = 30 o C, q s * = 27 g kg-1 , RH=50%; (d) T s = 30 o C, q s * = 27 g kg-1 , RH=100%. Assume a fixed density of 1.2 kg m-3 . 3. (Hartmann 6.4) Calculate the zonal velocity of an air parcel at the equator, if it has conserved angular momentum while moving to the equator from 20 o S, where it was initially at rest relative to the surface. 4. (Hartmann 6.5) The tropical easterlies and midlatitude westerlies occupy about the same surface area of Earth. Would you expect the surface westerly winds to be stronger, weaker, or about the same as the surface easterlies? Explain your answer with equations....
