About This Quiz & Worksheet

The quiz and worksheet will gauge your knowledge of adiabatic and diabatic processes. You should study information about what occurs when air is saturated and a parcel of air that ascends during an adiabatic process.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

The worksheet and quiz can be used to help you understand:

  • What occurs to a parcel of air that ascends during an adiabatic process
  • What occurs when air is saturated
  • Situation that occurs during adiabatic cooling
  • The difference between adiabatic and diabatic processes
  • Situation that occurs during diabatic cooling

Skills Practiced

These skills will be evaluated in the quiz and worksheet:

  • Knowledge application- use your knowledge to answer a question about adiabatic and diabatic processes
  • Information recall- access the knowledge you've gained regarding what occurs during diabatic cooling
  • Distinguishing differences - compare and contrast topics from the lesson, such as adiabatic processes and diabatic processes
