Temperature does not affect altitude, altitude affects temperature.

Altitude does indeed affect air temperature. The higher the altitude the cooler the temperature in the surrounding area will be.

Within the troposphere temperature decreases with increasing altitude.

Latitude and altitude can dramatically affect climate and vegetation. Climate and altitude both have an effect on temperature. This temperature is a big factor in what will grow and what will not.

the two things that affect the earth is the latitude and the altitude

Altitude should not affect oven temperature but it will affect how much your baked goods will rise in the oven. It is always a good idea to have an oven thermometer in your oven to make sure that the oven is calibrated properly.

four that affect temperature are latitude altitude distance from large bodies of water and ocean currents

Altitude, temperature and humidity.

Altitude can affect the temperature at which water boils, because the pressure changes.

Light, solar radiation, suns rays, wind, altitude and more. But these are the main factors that affect air temperature.

Pressure levels are raised on warm days and the indicated altitude is lower than true altitude.

The higher the altitude the colder the temperature gets. For every 1000 feet the temperature drops 4 degrees, that is why snow is often found on mountain tops.

Temperature - low temperature gains altitude quicker Pressure - High pressure gains altitude quicker Density - Low density gains altitude quicker

Three factors that affect air pressure are temperature, altitude, and water vapor.

The factors that affect condensation are vapour pressure (affected by both weather and altitude) and temperature, so there is no set altitude at which condensation occurs. this is not right

The higher the altitude the lower the temperature.

Temperature decreases as altitude increases.

It depends on the on what sphere of the atmosphere you are talking about. At ground level (troposhere) it gets colder as altitude rises. Once the altitude reaches the stratosphere the temperature becomes warmer then cools down again as it reaches the stratopause, and continues to decline as altitude increases in the mesophere until the mesopause. The temperature then rises significantly when the altitude is high enough to be considered the thermosphere.

Air temperature decreases on increasing altitude.

altitude refers to elevation above mean sea level. This measurement is determined most accurately by triangulation with optical instruments. The altitude of an airplane, however, is measured most accurately by means of a radio altimeter. Light reflect regularly in low altitude but light reflect irregular in high Altitude. The more altitude the less temperature and the less altitude the more temperature. At per 160-165m the altitude the temperature differs by 1 degree centigrate. bye cheers Shirshak Bajgain

Generally speaking, the higher you are in altitude, the lower the temperature.

as altitude increases temperature decreases

Actually, there are diagrams formeridian altitudetemperature altitudesolar altitude

When altitude rises, the air pressure and density both decrease. When temperature rises that means that more air is pushing down on it. So this means that the air pressure and density rise when temperature rises.
