IGN  xX The Iron Lady Xx  Royal Revolt 2

1 . Wind Shear

2.  Lots of small bits of ice bump into each other as they move around. All these collisions cause a build up of electrical charge. Eventually, the whole cloud fills up with               electrical charges. ... The positive charge from the ground connects with the negative charge from the clouds and a spark of lightning strikes.

3.  No limit

4.   A cloudburst is sudden copious rainfall. It is a sudden aggressive rainstorm falling for a short period of time limited to a small geographical area. Meteorologists say            the rain from a cloudburst is usually of the shower type with a fall rate equal to or greater than 100 mm (4.94 inches) per hour. 

5. February 29 is a date that usually occurs every four years, and is called leap day.      This day is added to the calendar in leap years as a corrective measure, because       the   Earth does not orbit the sun in precisely 365 days. The Gregorian calendar is a modification of the Julian calendar first used by the Romans.

6.     A dirty thunderstorm is a weather phenomenon that is related to the production of              lightning in a volcanic plume. 
7.   Wind is caused by differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in             atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from the higher to the lower pressure area,          resulting in winds of various speeds. On a rotating planet, air will also be deflected by      the Coriolis effect. 
8.   The Rayleigh scattering. During the day the atmosphere scatters shorter               wavelength violet and blue colours more than longer wavelength of yellow and red. 
 
9. They are not  at the same location, the earth's magnetic north pole shifts due to                magnetic changes in the earth's core. 
10.    No.

1. wind shear

2. Water vapor freezes at the top of the cloud and turns into ice. When these small bits of ice collide into each other, there is a buildup of electrical charge in the cloud and when there are enough charges a giant spark generates aka Lightning.

3. 7

4. Cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time which is capable of creating flood conditions. It differs from rain as rain most of the times do not pour down huge volume of water over the area and hence not creating flood like situations (mostly).

5. Since seasons and astronomical events don't repeat in the whole number of days, there is a drift over time with respect to the event that the year is suppose to track. By inserting an extra day this drift can be corrected which is done b adding a day in the month of February. The year in which it is inserted is a Leap Year and it comes after every 3 years.

6. This phenomenon is called Volcanic Lightning. In this electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash and ice particles in volcanic plume collide.

7. The difference in atmospheric pressure causes wind. The Wind moves from higher to lower pressure area.

8. It is due to Rayleigh Scattering caused by the atmosphere of the Earth.

9. No. Magnetic North Pole is placed upon where the magnetic lines of the planet converge in. From Geographical North, passes the axis about which the Earth rotates.

10. No, its oblate spheroid in shape.

Hi,

My Royal Revolt II IGN is xyreal. My answers:

1. A mass of cool air will sink, causing a "downdraft", which in turn causes aircraft to enter a downward motion.

2. Hot air rises, then cools and forms ice crystals, then falls as cold air. Those water droplets and ice crystals bump into each other as they rise and fall, creating positively charged small particles up top, and negatively charged heavier particles at the bottom of the area. When enough charge builds up between positive and negative ends, lightning flashes and temporarily equalizes the charged zones.

3. The Richter scale has no maximum value. It is an open-ended scale.

4. A cloudburst is an extreme amount of rain in a short time. It differs from normal rain in that it does not accumulate slowly by evaporation like normal rain. Cloudbursts accumulate very rapidly either by mixing cold and warm air that causes condensation, or by moving air quickly to a higher elevation as when a cloud front hits a mountain. The movement to higher elevation causes rapid cooling, which results in rapid condensation, which causes the extreme rain known as a cloudburst.

5. Years that can be divided evenly by 4 are leap years with the exception of years that can be evenly divided by 100 (century years) unless they can be evenly divided by 400.

6. Volcanic lightning, the ash parts are positive and negative loaded by the extreme temperature and cause flashes.

7. Differences in temperature create differences in pressure. These pressure differences result in wind.

8. Rayleigh Scattering. The sun produces white light, but earth's atmosphere deflects more blue wavelengths than red. The more atmosphere the light travels through, the more the color will appear yellow, then orange, then red, as you can see during a sunset.

9. Magnetic North and Geographic North are different. The magnetic poles are where the magnetic field lines surrounding our planet enter the earth, and geographic north is based on the axis of rotation. The two points are about 500km apart.

10. No.

Greetings!

1. Which wind movement causes aircrafts to enter a downward Motion?
A mass of cool air will sink, causing a "downdraft", which in turn causes aircraft to enter a downward motion.
 
2. What causes lightning?
Hot air rises, then cools and forms ice crystals, then falls as cold air. Those water droplets and ice crystals bump into each other as they rise and fall, creating positively charged small particles up top, and negatively charged heavier particles at the bottom of the area. When enough charge builds up between positive and negative ends, lightning flashes and temporarily equalizes the charged zones.
 
3. The Richter scale, developed in the 1930s, is a base-10 logarithmic scale. What is the max value on a Richter scale?
The Richter scale has no maximum value. It is an open-ended scale.
 
4. What is a cloudburst and how is it different from rain?
A cloudburst is an extreme amount of rain in a short time. It differs from normal rain in that it does not accumulate slowly by evaporation like normal rain. Cloudbursts accumulate very rapidly either by mixing cold and warm air that causes condensation, or by moving air quickly to a higher elevation as when a cloud front hits a mountain. The movement to higher elevation causes rapid cooling, which results in rapid condensation, which causes the extreme rain known as a cloudburst.

6. From the photo given above, ascertain the name and describe what's happening in short
Volcanic lightning, the ash parts are positive and negative loaded by the extreme Temperature and cause flashes.
 
7. What is the cause of winds?
Differences in temperature create differences in pressure. These pressure differences result in wind.
 
8. Even though Sun’s light is white, why does it appear to be yellowish when viewed from Earth?
Rayleigh Scattering. The sun produces white light, but earth's atmosphere deflects more blue wavelengths than red. The more atmosphere the light travels through, the more the color will appear yellow, then orange, then red, as you can see during a sunset.
 
9. Is the Earth’s magnetic north pole and geological north pole at the same location, if not state why it isn’t the same.
Magnetic North and Geographic North are different. The magnetic poles are where the magnetic field lines surrounding our planet enter the earth, and geographic north is based on the axis of rotation. The two points are about 500km apart.

1. Downdraft/downburst/microburst

2. Lightning is produced in thunderstorms when liquid and ice particles above the freezing level collide, and build up large electrical fields in the clouds. Once these electric fields become large enough, a giant "spark" occurs between them (or between them and the ground) like static electricity, reducing the charge separation. The lightning spark can occur between clouds, between the cloud and air, or between the cloud and ground.

3. In theory, the Richter scale has no upper limit, but in practice no earthquake in modern times has ever been registered above magnitude 9.5.

4. A cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, that is capable of creating flood conditions.
Cloudburst is a sudden heavy rainstorm while rain is condensed water falling from a cloud.

5. A leap year occurs mostly every 4 years, but every 100 years we skip a leap year unless the year is divisible by 400.

6. A dirty thunderstorm (also volcanic lightning, thunder volcano) is a weather phenomenon that is related to the production of lightning in a volcanic plume. Volcanic eruptions are sometimes accompanied by flashes of lightning. However, this lightning doesn’t descend from storm clouds in the sky. It is generated within the ash cloud spewing from the volcano, in a process called charge separation.

I prefer this pic:

volcanolightning.jpg.feead3e5070ed8f813cd63c90189900f.jpg

7. Wind is caused by differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from the higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speeds.

8. The Sun emits a lot of energy in the visible range. In wavelength scale it is from 390 nm to 700 nm, and when you translate it to colors, you get all colors from violet to red, just as we see them in the rainbow. When you mix all those colors together you get white, and that is why white is the true color of the Sun.

But seen from the Earth, the Sun can have many colors: from whitish-yellowish when it is high above the horizon, to red when it sets or rises. Most people see it as yellow, because the shortest wavelengths (that we see as different shades of blue) are being scattered by the Earth’s atmosphere, coloring the sky blue. And when our eyes combine all those rainbow colors, except the blue ones, the Sun’s color our eyes see is yellowish. The lower toward horizon the Sun is, the more blue is scattered and the “average” Sun’s color shifts to red.

HRdiagram.png.66ffdc1a68aa6396ae3c7fdd2e70e995.png

Can I have bonus for mentioning the Sun's color can also shift to red?

9. No. A compass needle will point to the direction of the Magnetic North Pole. But this doesn't mean that a compass always points to the Geographic North Pole. This difference is magnetic inclination. The Earth's magnetic north is changing every day because of the hot, liquid metal that surrounds the inner core.

10. No, Earth is Oblate Spheroid.

Thanks for the Trivia!

Q#1: Ans: A wake turbulence causes air crafts to enter a downward motion.

 

Q#2:Ans: Lighting is produced in thunderstorms when liquid and ice particles above the freezing level collide, and build up large electrical fields in the clouds. Once these fields become large enough, a giant spark occurs between them or between them and the ground like static electricity, reducing the charge separation. The spark can occur between clouds, between the cloud and air, or between the cloud and ground.

 

Q#3: Ans: It's metrologically limited to a magnitude of 6,5 to top.

 

Q#4: Ans: It's an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, sometimes accompanied by hail and thunder, that is capable of creating flood conditions.       Cloudbursts are infrequent as they occur only via orographic lift when warm air parcel mixes with cooler air, resulting in sudden condensation. At times, a large         amount of runoff from higher elevations is mistakenly conflated with a cloudburst arose from the notion that clouds were akin to water balloons and cloudburst resulting in rapid precipitation.

 

Q#5: Ans: A leap year occurs every 4 years.

 

Q#6: Ans: It's a volcanic lighting. The enormous quantity of pulverized material and gases explosively ejected into the atmosphere creates a dense plume of particles. The ash density and constant motion within the volcanic plume produces charge by fictional interactions, resulting in very powerful and very frequent flashes as the cloud attempts to neutralize itself.

 

Q#7: Ans: It's caused by the differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speeds. 

 

Q#8:Ans: Our atmosphere scatters shorter to bigger wavelengths color from sunlight when the white light travels through it. It scatters violet and blue colors leaving yellowish sunlight. The reason why sky is blue and sunlight is yellow.

 

Q#9: Ans: No, the geological north pole is located in the middle of the arctic ocean while the magnetic north pole is a point in northern canada, where the northern lines of attraction enter the Earth. If you hold a Compass from the geological north pole it would point towards the magnetic one. This one is actually moving kilometers every year, because the Earth is dynamic and changes. It's called the Polar shift theory.

 

Q#10:  Ans: No.

1.  A mass of cool air will sink, causing a "downdraft", which in turn causes aircraft to enter a downward motion.

2. Hot air rises, then cools and forms ice crystals, then falls as cold air. Those water droplets and ice crystals bump into each other as they rise and fall, creating positively charged small particles up top, and negatively charged heavier particles at the bottom of the area. When enough charge builds up between positive and negative ends, lightning flashes and temporarily equalizes the charged zones.

3. The Richter scale has no maximum value. It is an open-ended scale.

4. A cloudburst is an extreme amount of rain in a short time. It differs from normal rain in that it does not accumulate slowly by evaporation like normal rain. Cloudbursts accumulate very rapidly either by mixing cold and warm air that causes condensation, or by moving air quickly to a higher elevation as when a cloud front hits a mountain. The movement to higher elevation causes rapid cooling, which results in rapid condensation, which causes the extreme rain known as a cloudburst.

5. Years that can be divided evenly by 4 are leap years with the exception of years that can be evenly divided by 100 (century years) unless they can be evenly divided by 400.

6. Volcanic lightning, the ash parts are positive and negative loaded by the extreme Temperature and cause flashes. 

7. Differences in temperature create differences in pressure. These pressure differences result in wind.

8. Rayleigh Scattering. The sun produces white light, but earth's atmosphere deflects more blue wavelengths than red. The more atmosphere the light travels through, the more the color will appear yellow, then orange, then red, as you can see during a sunset.

9. Magnetic North and Geographic North are different. The magnetic poles are where the magnetic field lines surrounding our planet enter the earth, and geographic north is based on the axis of rotation. The two points are about 500km apart.

10. No.

The ash density and constant motion within the volcanic plume produces charge by fictional interactions, resulting in very powerful and very frequent flashes as the cloud attempts to neutralize itself.

Q#7: What is the cause of winds?

Ans: It's caused by the differences in the atmospheric pressure. When a difference in atmospheric pressure exists, air moves from higher to the lower pressure area, resulting in winds of various speeds. 

Q#8: Even though Sun’s light is white, why does it appear to be yellowish when viewed from Earth?

Ans: Our atmosphere scatters shorter to bigger wavelengths color from sunlight when the white light travels through it. It scatters violet and blue colors leaving yellowish sunlight. The reason why sky is blue and sunlight is yellow.

Q#9:  Is the Earth’s magnetic north pole and geological north pole at the same location, if not state why it isn’t the same.

Ans: No, the geological north pole is located in the middle of the arctic ocean while the magnetic north pole is a point in northern canada, where the northern lines of attraction enter the Earth. If you hold a Compass from the geological north pole it would point towards the magnetic one. This one is actually moving kilometers every year, because the Earth is dynamic and changes. It's called the Polar shift theory.

Q#10:  Earth is Prolate Spheroid in shape. Yes or No?

Ans: No.

Q#1: Which wind movement causes aircrafts to enter a downward motion?

Ans: A wake turbulence causes air crafts to enter a downward motion.

Q#2: What causes lightning?

Ans: Lighting is produced in thunderstorms when liquid and ice particles above the freezing level collide, and build up large electrical fields in the clouds. Once these fields become large enough, a giant spark occurs between them or between them and the ground like static electricity, reducing the charge separation. The spark can occur between clouds, between the cloud and air, or between the cloud and ground.

Q#3: The Richter scale, developed in the 1930s, is a base-10 logarithmic scale. What is the max value on a Richter scale?

Ans: It's metrologically limited to a magnitude of 6,5 to top.

Q#4: What is a cloudburst and how is it different from rain?

Ans: It's an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, sometimes accompanied by hail and thunder, that is capable of creating flood conditions.       Cloudbursts are infrequent as they occur only via orographic lift when warm air parcel mixes with cooler air, resulting in sudden condensation. At times, a large         amount of runoff from higher elevations is mistakenly conflated with a cloudburst arose from the notion that clouds were akin to water balloons and cloudburst resulting in rapid precipitation.

Q#5: When does a leap year occur?

Ans: A leap year occurs every 4 years.

Q#6: From the photo given above, ascertain the name and describe what's happening in short.  Amazing pic, isn't it!

Game RR2

1. Wind shear 

2. Lightning is generally caused by the separation of positively and negatively charged particles in the atmosphere. Once the charge separation becomes large enough to overcome the insulating properties of air, electricity will flow in between the positively and negatively charged particles as bolts of lightning and neutralize the charge. It can occur in clouds or between cloud and earth. 

3. The Richter scale does not have an upper limit. The Richter scale is a logarithmic representation of the amount of energy released by an earthquake, or its magnitude.

The theoretical upper limit for our planet would be Richter 12.0, which is the point at where the energy released splits the planet in half against even gravity, or into multiple chunks

4. Cloudburst : an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, sometimes accompanied by hail and thunder, that is capable of creating flood conditions.

It is different from rain as rain is condensed water falling from a cloud while cloudburst is a sudden heavy rainstorm. 

 

5. A leap year is the year which have an additional day i. e., 366 days. It appears every four year in general.

However there is a rule :-

Every year that is exactly divisible by four is a leap year, except for years that are exactly divisible by 100, but these centurial years are leap years if they are exactly divisible by 400. For example, the years 1700, 1800, and 1900 were not leap years, but the years 1600 and 2000 were.

6.It is volcanic lightening. 

Volcanic lightning is a visually incredible, naturally occurring phenomenon that has been witnessed and documented in nearly 200 eruptions over the last 200 year.

In the above pic, violent form of lightning is happening inside the ash clouds of erupting volcano due to charge difference. 

7. Wind is caused by a difference in pressure from one area to another area on the surface of the Earth. Air naturally moves from high to low pressure, and when it does so, it is called wind.

8. one of the main reasons the Sun looks yellow is because we see it a against a blue background.

The white light is following its physical behavior when it touches the atmosphere. Some of the wavelength got dispersed in the atmosphere, some are survived and touch the ground. The Sun appear yellow because the blue light is distorted to color the sky so we see a white with less blue -> yellow.

9. No, the Earth’s magnetic north pole and geological north pole is not at the same location.

The Geographic North Pole is where lines of longitudes converge into what we call the North Pole While the magnetic pole is the point were the magnetic field lines are vertical and enter the earth.A magnetic compass needle will always try to align itself with the magnetic field lines

The two poles can't be at same position  because the Earth’s magnetic north is changing every day because of the hot, liquid metal that surrounds the inner core. It can change so much that the Earth’s magnetic field can flip polarity.

10. No. Earth is oblate spheroid.
