The table presents the average day and night temperatures in five cities. it also reveals whether a city receives substantial rainfall (wet climate) or little rainfall (dry climate). which city’s rocks are likeliest to experience frost wedging, and why? a) city a because the consistently subzero temperature would prevent water from melting b) city b because it is a wet region and the temperature fluctuates around the freezing point c) city c because it receives plenty of rain fall and the weather is moderately cool d) city d because the hot and dry weather would cause rocks to absorb water
The correct answer is B) City B because it is a wet region and the temperature fluctuates around the freezing point
City B rocks are likeliest to experience frost wedging because its temperature fluctuates between 5°C to -4°C . Fluctuation of temperature near freezing point, frost wedging takes place when water converted into ice. Water expands when it changed in ice. As a result water continually seeps into rock cracks. The frequent freezing and melting causes Freeze-thaw. Through repeated melting and freezing of water the rocks break apart.
D. summers with temperatures over 100ºF; very little rainfall throughout the year.
The areas that appear in light yellow in this map (labelled A) are those that have a weather that can be characterized as warm desert climate. This means that the area has very hot summers with temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The area also receives very little rainfall throughout the year. In terms of daily weather, the days tend to be hot, while the night is significantly cooler.
Temperate climates are generally defined as environments with moderate rainfall spread across the year or portion of the year with sporadic drought, mild to warm summers and cool to cold winters.
The correct answer is B: moderate rainfall and mild temperatures. This region is dry and hot, although winters are mild with a little rain. To the north of the desert are the great steppes. This area has extremes of temperature and rain in winter and spring. Rest of the area has rainfall between March and November and sometimes floods from March to May. Summers are long and hot and winters mild and wet along the Mediterranean coast.
The correct answer is C. The climate of Bolivia ranges from humid and tropical to cold and semiarid.
Bolivia's climate varies widely between ecoregions, from tropical conditions in the eastern plains to a polar climate in the western Andes. The summers are hot, humid in the east and dry in the west with rains that change the temperature, humidity, wind, atmospheric pressure, and evaporation, giving rise to different climates. When the climatological and erratically cyclic phenomenon called El Niño arises, it causes great changes in the climate. The winters in the west are quite cold and have snow in the vicinity of the mountains, while the lowlands tend to have windy days. Autumn is dry in non-tropical regions.
City B because it is a wet region and the temperature fluctuates around the freezing point
