Suppose that the storm condenses all the water vapor in 10km3 (ten cubic kilometers) of air. Assume that at the conditions of the storm there is 100% relative humidity and that this corresponds to .02 kg of water in every cubic meter and a heat of vaporization of 2x103kJ/kg. (a) How much heat is released by the storm through this condensation process? (b) How many kilotons of TN...
