YOUR TEST NUMBER IS THE 5-DIGIT NUMBER AT THE TOP OF EACH PAGE. (1) Please print your name and your UF ID number and sign the top of this page and the back of the answer sheet. (2) Code your test number on your answer sheet (use lines 7680 on the answer sheet for the 5-digit number) . (3) This is a closed book exam and books, calculators or any other materials are NOT allowed during the exam. (4) Identify the number of the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. (5) Blacken the circle of your intended answer completely, using a #2 pencil or blue or black ink. Do not make any stray marks or the answer sheet may not read properly. (6) Do all scratch work anywhere on this printout that you like. At the end of the test, this exam printout is to be turned in. No credit will be given without both answer sheet and printout. There are 40 multiple choice questions. All questions are worth 2.5 points, so the maximum number of points on this test is 100. If more than one answer is marked, no credit will be given for that question, even if one of the marked answers is correct. There is no penalty for wrong answers, so it is better to guess an answer than to leave it blank. Good Luck! 1. A weather balloon released into the atmosphere has measured the temperature of the atmosphere to be 0 C on the ground and 0 C at an altitude of 1000 m. What can you say about the stability of the atmosphere? Assume the dry adiabatic lapse rate to be 10 C per 1000 m and the moist adiabatic lapse rate to be 6 C per 1000 m. (1) The atmosphere is absolutely stable. (2) The atmosphere is absolutely unstable. (3) The atmosphere is conditionally unstable. (4) The atmosphere is neutrally stable for unsaturated air and unstable for saturated air. (5) The described situation is impossible since temperature always decreases with height. 2. The atmosphere is most likely to be stable (1) at sunrise. (2) at sunset. (3) at noon. (4) at midnight. (5) in the late afternoon. 3. At the condensation level (1) all of these (2) clouds begin to form. (3) the relative humidity is 100% . (4) the temperature is equal to the dew point temperature. (5) 4. Rain shadow (1) is a term commonly used to describe the drier region observed on the downwind (leeward) side of a mountain range....
