Puffy cumulus clouds, which are made of water droplets, occur at lower altitudes in the atmosphere. Wispy cirrus clouds, which are made of ice crystals, occur only at higher altitudes. On a typical day and at altitudes less than 11km
the temperature at an altitude y, can be given by T = To - Alpha*y
where To = 24.0 degrees celcius and Alpha = (6.00/1000m)
Find the altitude y(measured from sea level) above which only one cirrus clouds can occur
express your answer numberically in kilometers, using three significant figures.
the ones above
The Attempt at a Solution
No idea really how to approach the problem
but i know it includes phase transition?
anyone care for a good ol explanation? XD cheers
