About This Quiz & Worksheet

This quiz and its corresponding worksheet will help measure your understanding of weather variables and how they can interact with each other. Concepts you'll need to know for the quiz include what type of air holds the most moisture and what causes changes in air pressure.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

Use these tools to assess your understanding of:

  • The difference between leeward and windward mountainsides
  • What needs to happen to create an adiabatic process
  • Where rain mostly falls on mountains and why
  • What causes air pressure changes
  • The factors that affect moisture content in air

Skills Practiced

  • Making connections - use your understanding of the concept of air pressure and how it affects air density
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding warm air and cool air and apply it correctly
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you gained regarding the adiabatic process
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about the relationship between air pressure and temperature

Additional Learning

To learn more about ways temperature, air pressure, and density can work together, read over the corresponding lesson called Weather Variables: Air Pressure, Temperature, & Density. The lesson covers these objectives:

  • Understand how density can affect temperature
  • Define what a weather front is
  • Know how molecules in the air affect pressure
  • Differentiate between the terms windward and leeward
