Air masses have fairly uniform temperature and moisture content in horizontal direction (but not uniform in vertical). Air masses are characterized by their temperature and humidity properties. The properties of air masses are determined by the the underlying surface properties where they originate.
Colder air masses are termed polar or arctic, while warmer air masses are deemed tropical. Continental and superior air masses are dry while maritime and monsoon air masses are moist. Weather fronts separate air masses with different density (temperature and/or moisture) characteristics

If the magnitude of the electric field at a distance of 7.8 cm from the center is 30500 n/c , what is the magnitude of the elect
3730 N/CThe intensity of the electric field follows the inverse square law. Since everything except the distance is remaining constant, then the force will vary with the inverse square of the ratio of the change. So first, lets calculate the ratio of the change in distance.22.3 / 7.8 = 2.858974359And since we actually want the square of the distance...2.858974359^2 = 8.173734385And since the distance increased, that means the force will decrease. So we get30500 / 8.173734385 = 3731.464538Rounding to 3 significant figures gives 3730 N/C.

A scuba diver and her gear displace a volume of 70.0 LL and have a total mass of 74.3 kgkns . what is the buosdrta.netnt force on the di
Volume displaced by diver
mass of scuba diver
Also density of sea water
Weight of diver
Buosdrta.netnt force on diver
Since weight is greater than buosdrta.netnt force so diver will sink in the sea
