Question:

Why do showers and thunderstorms typically form in areas of low pressure rather than areas of high pressure?

I like to think about weight when answering this question. To get low pressure, you need to remove weight; which results in rising motion to get lighter. To get high pressure, you need to add weight, resulting in sinking motion. Now think of a large thunderstorm, with cloud tops high in the atmosphere. In order for that thunderstorm to build up, rising motion needs to occur. High pressure’s sinking motion offsets this. This same process needs to occur for the tiniest of showers. This is why when you are under an area of high pressure the weather is usually quite nice.

Question:

Why don’t hurricanes develop along the equator?

Hurricanes need the Coriolis force to develop, which is zero at the equator.

Question:

Convert 50° Fahrenheit to Celsius and Kelvin.

First, we should convert Fahrenheit to Celsius. I would first ask the student if they’re familiar with the equation to convert. If they are, great. If not, I would go over it with them. 5/9(F-32) I would then ask the student to solve, by hand or via calculator depending on what they have or are allowed to use. This comes out to 10°C. Now, I ask how they should go about converting to Kelvin. Just like Celsius, if they don’t know it, I’ll go over it with them. C+273.15 This comes out to 283.15.
