My answer (mostly from wiki)
1. Which wind movement causes aircrafts to enter a downward motion?
Turbulent downward moving air
2. What causes lightning?
In a thundercloud. lots of small bits of ice bump into each other as they move around. All these collisions cause a build up of electrical charge.
When the whole cloud fills up with electrical charges,lighter, positively charged particles form at the top of the cloud and heavier, negatively charged particles sink to the bottom of the cloud.
When the positive and negative charges grow large enough, a giant spark - lightning - occurs between the two charges within the cloud
3. The Richter scale, developed in the 1930s, is a base-10 logarithmic scale. What is the max value on a Richter scale?
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. What is a cloudburst and how is it different from rain?
A cloudburst is an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time.
5. When does a leap year occur?
Every four years is a leap year which has 366 days
The year can be evenly divided by 4
6. From the photo given above, ascertain the name and describe what's happening in short
A dirty thunderstorm (also volcanic lightning, thunder volcano) is a weather phenomenon that is related to the production of lightning in a volcanic plume
7. What is the cause of winds?
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. Generally, we can say that the cause of the wind is the uneven heating of the Earth's surface by the Sun
8. Even though Sun’s light is white, why does it appear to be yellowish when viewed from Earth?
Sun is essentially all colors mixed together, which appear to our eyes as white.
When we see the Sun at sunrise or sunset, when it is low in the sky, it may appear yellow, orange, or red. But that is only because its short-wavelength colors (green, blue, violet) are scattered out by the Earth's atmosphere, much like small waves are dispersed by big rocks along the shore. Hence only the reds, yellows, and oranges get through the thick atmosphere
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.
The terrestrial North Pole is a fixed geographic point that’s diametrically opposed to the terrestrial South Pole
Sswirling motions of molten metal in Earth's outer core make our planet's magnetic field. Those swirling motions are changing all the time, forming the magnetic poles.
10. Earth is Prolate Spheroid in shape. Yes or No?
