Want to learn more about the topic in this week’s video? Here are some key words/phrases to get your googling started:
– Lifting Condensation Level (LCL): The altitude at which the water vapor in rising air begins to condense
– Adiabatic Cooling: describes the process by which an air blob cools as it rises (and as air pressure drops)
– Latent heat: the energy absorbed by water molecules during evaporation and released during condensation
– Energy of Vaporization: The amount of energy it takes for a liquid to evaporate
– Ideal Gas Law: The rule about how a volume of gas at a constant temperature and pressure always has the same number of molecules
– Supercell: A really big thunderstorm. Like, the biggest.
