Question 2

Question
Complete the paragraph about the Circulation Cells... At the [blank_start]equator[blank_end], [blank_start]warmed[blank_end] air rises to 15km, causing [blank_start]low[blank_end] pressure. The air current divides, [blank_start]cools[blank_end] and moves [blank_start]north[blank_end] and south to form [blank_start]Hadley[blank_end] cells. The cooled air sinks at 30*c north and south of the [blank_start]equator[blank_end], leading to [blank_start]high[blank_end] presure.
Answer
  • equator
  • warmed
  • low
  • cools
  • north
  • Hadley
  • equator
  • high

Question 3

Question
Complete stage 2 of the explanation... Some of the [blank_start]cooled[blank_end] air moves back towards the [blank_start]Equator[blank_end] as trade winds. The rest travels towards the [blank_start]Poles[blank_end], forming the [blank_start]lower[blank_end] part of the [blank_start]Ferrell[blank_end] cells.
Answer
  • cooled
  • Equator
  • Poles
  • lower
  • Ferrell

Question 4

Question
Complete Stage 3 of the Statement... At 60*c north and south, the warmer air of the Ferrell cells meets [blank_start]cooler[blank_end] Polar air. The warmer air [blank_start]rises[blank_end] to form [blank_start]Polar Cells[blank_end]. This air travels to the Poles, where it cools and sink, forming areas of [blank_start]high[blank_end] pressure.
Answer
  • cooler
  • rises
  • Polar Cells
  • high
