• Need help answering A, B, C, and D. ?

The ambient air temperature at sea level (0m) is 17°C. A bubble of air (i.e., an air parcel) forms over an asphalt parking lot and gets heated to 25°C. This unsaturated air parcel (25°C) separates from the parking lot and is then forced to rise from sea level (0m) to 4000m. The rising air parcel reaches the LCL at 3000m and become saturated as it continues to be forced to rise. Given an Environmental Temperature Lapse Rate of 11°C/1000 m, a DALR of 10°C/1000 m, and a SALR of 8°C/1000m calculate: A) the ambient air temperature at 3000m (1 point), B) the internal temperature of the air parcel at 3000m (1 point), and C) the internal temperature of the air parcel at 4000m (1 point). Then, D) determine if the atmosphere at 4000m is stable or unstable (1 point).

• ambient air temperature at 3000m, internal temperature of the air parcel at 3000m C) determine if atmosphere at 3000m is stable or unstable?

The ambient air temperature at sea level (0m) is 18°C. A bubble of air (i.e., an air parcel) forms over an asphalt parking lot and gets heated to 24°C. This unsaturated air parcel (24°C) separates from the parking lot and is then forced to rise from sea level (0m) to 3000m and does not become saturated at any point. Given an Environmental Temperature Lapse Rate of 6°C/1000 m, a DALR of 10°C/1000 m, calculate: A) the ambient air temperature at 3000m (1 point), B) the internal temperature of the air parcel at 3000m (1 point). Then, C) determine if the atmosphere at 3000m is stable or unstable (1 point)

• Parcel temp at 0m is 18°C, reaches LCL at 4000m. As it rises from 4000 to 6000m condensation occurs. Find temp of parcel at A) LCL and 6000m?

An unsaturated parcel of air at sea level rises to 6000m. Assume the DALR = 10°C/1000m and a SALR of 7°C/1000m.
