Student Work Brittany Tornado

  1. 2. <ul><li>A look at what’s inside the air of a Tornado </li></ul><ul><li>How when the air is heated, it becomes less dense, and it’s part in a Tornado </li></ul><ul><li>Why the poles receive less heat from the sun, and how that plays its part. </li></ul><ul><li>A look at a diagram of how the land and water surfaces heat differently producing winds </li></ul><ul><li>Identification of fronts, how they act as a boundary, and how they play their part in the process of a tornado </li></ul>
  2. 3. The 5 main components of air are Nitrogen (78%) Oxygen (21%) Other Gasses such as Carbon Dioxide (1%) Water Vapor and Particles (.5%) These components are in the air that you breathe, as well as in the air that mixes up inside a tornado.
  3. 4. When the air gets heated it becomes less and less dense, thus it rises. When the air rises and passes cooler air, often, they collide in a circular action and create a funnel. This action spins like a merry-go-round and races through an area like a racing horse.
  4. 5. UNEVEN HEATING <ul><li>The Equator and the Poles Receive different amounts of heat rays from the Sun’s radiation. When the Equator heats up, and it’s warm winds head towards the Northern Hemisphere, they collide with the cooler winds heading from the Northern Hemisphere towards the Southern Hemisphere, when they collide, they create a funnel which eventually becomes a Tornado. </li></ul>
  5. 6. Diagram (I made it myself)
  6. 7. Fronts: Their part in a Tornado <ul><li>Cold Front: Creates a Boundary between a warm air mass and a cold air mass. The Part it takes in a Tornado is the cold air mass that collides </li></ul><ul><li>Warm Front: Creates a Boundary between a warm air mass and a cold air mass. The part it takes in a Tornado is colliding with the cold front to make the funnel. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Fronts That Don’t Have A Part In a Tornado <ul><li>Occluded Front: When a warm air mass is overtaken by a cold air mass. (Has no part in the making of a Tornado.) </li></ul><ul><li>Stationary Front: When a cold air mass and a warm air mass collide at the same force so there is no movement. (Has no part in the making of a Tornado.) </li></ul>
