Problem 16

Is the relativistic Doppler effect valid only for lightwaves? Can you think of another situation in which itmight be valid?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Unit 7 Notes Temperature and Temperature Scales • What is temperature • Thermometers • Scales: Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin Kelvins °C °F Water boils 373 100 212 Water freezes 273 0 32 Absolute zero 0 -273 -460 - A Kelvin is the same as degrees Celsius The Vertical Distribution of Temperature • Environmental Lapse Rate- Temperature profile determined by local influences • Adiabatic Lapse Rates -Dry Adiabatic Lapse Rate (DALR)-10 degrees Celsius per 1000 meters of atmosphere - Saturated Adiabatic Lapse Rate-warmer air is lighter and rises separate from surroundings. Air cools after it saturates. 4-9 degrees Celsius per 1000 meters of atmosphere (SALR) • Stability Inversion- temperature increases with • stable height inversions (ground, subsidence) -unstable Compression causes heating related -conditionally stable to sinking air • Stability and Air Pollution Rising air- critical component to thunderstorms Environmental Lapse Rate Conditions Environmental lapse rate
