As the air gets warmer, it's ability to hold water vapor increases.
The average air temperature on Earth may increase as a result of the ability of carbon dioxide and water vapor to absorb?
I am taking earth science too I am pretty good at it 1. visible light 2. radio waves 3. gamma radiation 4. infrared radiation 4 is your answer because it is talking about …heat, and infraredwaves are the same as simply saying heat. Carbon dioxide is transparent to the short-wavelength heat andlight that arrive from the Sun (which has a surface temperature of6000 degrees) to heat the surface of the Earth, but it blocksreradiation from the Earth, which occurs at a longer wavelengthbecause the temperature is much lower. That is called thegreenhouse effect.
The humidity decreases. Plain and simple!
It decreases. This is because the air becomes much colder higher up. It is also because the source of water (earth's surface) becomes further away.
There are a few factors that increase the ability to hold water vapor or in other words evaporation. If there is a increased amount of clouds in the air that means the air is …collecting more water vapor and the water vapor forms around aerosols which are tiny dust particles that water forms around, eventually it condenses and falls back down to earth as rain or some sort of precipitation according to the atmospheric conditions. Higher air pressure , and higher temperature will both increase the ability of the air to absorb water vapour.
As water vapor increases, pressure decreases due to the fact that water is made up of hydrogen and oxygen, which is lighter than what most of the air is made out of, oxygen an…d nitrogen.
When air can't hold any more water vapor, the humidity is 100%. If the air gets cooler, the water vapor condenses, forming dew. If the air gets warmer, it can hold more water …vapor, so the humidity decreases even though the amount of water vapor stays the same.
Atmospheric pressure is reduced with increasing water vapor because the water has a lower molecular weight than dry air. The same number of molecules occupy a given volume at …a given pressure, so the total mass of water vapor laden air is lower than dry air. If you add up the weight of a column of the wet air it will weigh less than the same column filled with dry air, hence, wet air has a lower air pressure.
Air can hold a certain amount of water vapour. The amount it can hold depends on the air temperature - the hotter it is, the more water it can hold. A way to think of it is th…at water Can dissolve in air, just like some gases and solids can dissolve in water.
From what I think, as temperature increases, space between molecules of particles of air increases, which now has more space for water vapor to fit in. Also, as temperatu…re increases, more water can evaporate to form vapor, so IF THE QUESTION IS IN RELATION TO A PLACE NEAR A WATER BODY, the water vapor content should increase.
it occurs as rain,fog,or mist .
In order for soil to increase its ability to hold water it must have a higher amount of clay present in it. The more clay present in the soil, the more water it will hold. T…he opposite to this is how sandy or grainy the soil is, if it is too sandy then it will not hold water very well.
Temperature is the main variant of air's ability to hold moisture.The warmer the air the more water it can hold without condensation.
A rise in temperature allows the air to absorb more water vapour.
