Cumulus clouds have flat bases and lumpy tops. The tops are usually 1 mile above sea level. To find the height in feet of the base of a cumulus cloud, you can use the formula: height = 222 (air temperature - dew-point temperature). The air and dew-point temperatures are in degrees Fahrenheit.

a. Find the height of the base of a cumulus cloud when the air temperature is 80°F and the dew-point temperature is 70°F.
b. Suppose the dew point drops and the air temperature remains constant. What happens to the height of the base of the cloud? Explain.
