# Which two factors determine both climate and weather?

temperature and weather

### What is the difference between weather and climate how do both relate to the science of meteorology?

### What is the similarities and differences between weather and climate?

Both weather an climate describe the atmospheric conditions and characteristics of an area. However, while weather describes the specific atmospheric conditions on the short term (minutes, hours, and days), climate describes more general conditions on the long term (decades, centuries, and millennia).

### How does the earth's position in relationship to the sun affect weather and climate?

The earth's orbit around the sun is almost circular. The slight deviation from circularity plays no practical part in the climate. Weather and climate are to do with the tilt of the earth's axis, and it's orientation to the plane of the orbit - if the axis was perpendicular to the plane of the orbit there would be no seasons cycle. If the orbit were farther from the sun, it would be colder (eg Mars)…

### What is the LCM of 21 and 28?

To determine the least common multiple of two numbers, determine the prime factors of both number. Then, determine the prime factors they have in common. Multiply all their prime factors together (in other words, multiply both numbers together) and divide by the prime factors they have in common (in other words, their greatest common factor). The prime factors of 21 are 3 and 7. The prime factors of 28 are 2, 2, and 7. The…

### What is the climate and weather of Colorado?

Colorado has both a semiarid climate and alpine climate. A semiarid climate is one that is between desert and humid climates. An alpine climate is climate found at extreme elevations near mountain ranges, usually very cold and lots of precipitation. Colorado is a complex climate state and ranges from deserts to hills to flatlands to mountains.

### How are weather and climate similar?

Bit of a word game here! Climate is the pattern of temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, rain, and other meteorological elements, experienced, usually on a seasonal basis by a given place over a long period of time. By extension it tells you what conditions you can expect. Like "What sort of climate do you guys have? Is it hot and dry in the Summer? How cold does it usually get in the winter?" Weather is…

### Is it true that the average weather of an area over long periods of time is weather?

No, the average weather of an area over long periods of time is climate. Weather happens from day to day and from year to year. Climate change takes longer than that. So the fact that 2010 was warmer than 2011 means only that weather changes from year to year. There are spikes, both up and down, in measurements and we have to look at longer term averages to see trends.

### What does a climatologist mean?

Climatologists, those who practice climatology (study of the periodicity of weather events over years to millennia, as well as changes in long-term average weather patterns, in relation to atmospheric conditions) study both the nature of climates - local, regional or global - and the natural or human-induced factors that cause climates to change. Climatology considers the past and can help predict future climate change.

### What is the least common multiple of 14 and 42?

The LCM of 14 and 42 is 42. The simplest method to determine the least common multiple in this case is to notice that 42 is a multiple of 14. Since 42 is a multiple of 14, the least common multiple is 42. To determine the least common multiple of two numbers, you can also determine the prime factors of both numbers. Then, determine the prime factors they have in common. Multiply all their prime…

### What is least common multiple of 14 and 40?

To determine the least common multiple of two numbers, determine the prime factors of both number. Then, determine the prime factors they have in common. Multiply all their prime factors together and then divide by the prime factors they have in common. The prime factors of 14 are 2 and 7. The prime factors of 40 are 2, 2, 2, and 5. The common prime factors are a single 2. Therefore, the least common multiple…

### What is the relationship between Haiyan and Hurricane Sandy?

Both typhoons and hurricanes are tropical cyclones. So Haiyan and Sandy were both examples of the same type of weather system, though Sandy later transitioned into a post-tropical cyclone. There is no causal relationship between the two. Discussion of climate change came up with both storms, but you cannot attribute any single event to a shift in climate.

### Is the weather good or bad in Florida?

I know this answer because I live in Florida. Florida can have good and bad weather, but most of the time, the weather is beautiful. See, Florida's climate changes during the winter, and during the summer. Most times in Florida after 2:00 p.m. it rains. But not all the time. It is rare if Florida has bad weather, but trust me, it does. So basically, it's both. Florida has good and bad weather.
