2. (a) After the parcel of air has descended down the lee side of the
mountain to sea level, what is the temperature of the parcel?

(b) Why is the parcel now warmer than it was at sea level on the windward side (what
is the source of the heat energy)?

3. (a) On the windward side of the mountain, is the relative humidity of the parcel increasing or decreasing as it rises from sea level to 3000 meters?

(b) Why?

4. (a) On the lee side of the mountain, is the relative humidity of the parcel increasing or decreasing as it descends from 6000 feet to sea level?

b) Why?
