Unformatted text preview: f 30 oC and a pressure of 1000 mb, would the number of molecules in the container initially increase, decrease or remain the same? Explain. Problem #3: Write an expression for the sensitivity of evaporation rate to surface temperature (dE/dT). Based on this, if the radiative forcing of CO2 is balanced by an increase in evaporation, would you expect a larger surface temperature change in the tropics or polar regions? p c pd Problem #4: Show that potential temperature, = 0 , and dry static energy, p c p T + , are conserved for dry adiabatic processes.
