in the value of the exponent, a, in w
t
α
r
a
?
2)
Approximately what is the ratio of the concentration of cloud condensation nuclei to ice
nuclei in a typical volume of air?
3)
Will ice crystals grow or shrink if the relative humidity (with respect to liquid water) is
92% and the temperature is –20
o
C?
4)
How can the addition of high concentrations of small hygroscopic aerosols to a warm
cloud increase the likelihood of precipitation?
5)
Why is AgI a more efficient ice nuclei than NaCl?
6)
