+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 : 15-11=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: 14-8=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
