Temperature and
Altitude
Answers


1. Temperature goes up with increased
altitude. False
+15 >
56
2. What is the total temperature change from 0 meters to 15,000
meters of altitude?
15+56=71 = 71 degrees
Celsius
3. What is the change in temperature from 0 to 500 meters in
altitude?
0 meters = 15 : 500 meters =
11 : 1511=4 degrees Celsius
4. How much colder (in degrees Celsius) is it at 1,000 meters than
at 100 meters in altitude?
1,000 m = 8 degrees: 100 m =
14 degrees: 148=6 degrees colder
5. The change in temperature from 0 to 1,000 meters is 7 degrees
Celsius, what is the change in temperature per meter of altitude?
7 / 1000 = .007 = seven
thousandth of a degree per meter
6. What is the temperature change per meter of altitude from 500
meters to 1,000 meters of altitude?
3 / 500 = .006 = six
thousandth of a degree per meter
7. What is the temperature change per meter of altitude from 1,000
meters to 1,500 meters of altitude?
3 / 500 = .006 = six
thousandth of a degree per meter
8. The rate of change per meter of altitude between 500 and 1,000
meters is equal to the rate of change between 1,000 and 1,500
meters of altitude change. False
.006 ==
.006
9. Above 2,000 meters in altitude between what 1,000 degree
interval is the temperature change the least?
3,000 meters to 4,000
meters
10. From question 9 what is the change in temperature (degrees
Celsius) per meter over that 1,000 meter interval?
6 / 1000 = .006 six thousandth
of a degree per meter
