How do they form? _______________ Formation: ____________________________________________________________ _______________ Formation: ____________________________________________________________ Select the correct statement. a. The atmospheric pressure at any point is due to the weight of the air below b. Pressure altitude is the reading on the altimeter when it is set to standard barometric pressure c. Pressure altitude is the exact height above sea level d. Density altitude is the reading on the altimeter when it is set to the current barometric pressure The Coriolis Force affects the directional flow of air from high pressure areas to low pressure areas and is caused by: a. tidal forces b. the rotation of the earth c. the sun d. temperature differentials The rate of change of pressure over a given distance and measured at right angles to the isobars is known as: a. Mean Sea Level pressure b. the pressure gradient c. the lapse rate d. convergence Wind is caused by: a. vertical pressure differences b. the rotation of the earth c. the heating of the earth surface by the sun d. the movement of fronts As altitude increases, the wind will normally: a. veer, then back b. back, then veer c. veer and increase d. back and decrease
