Homework Physics 645 Fall 2003

Homework 1 due 9/22/03

Chapter 1

problems 3, 4

1-3) The land sea breeze is a lighrt wind blowing from the sea as a result of the temperature difference between the land and the sea. As this temperature difference reverses from day to night, the daytime sea breeze turns into a nighttime land breeze. If you were developing a numerical model of the sea-land breeze, should you include the effects of the earths rotation? Justify!

1-4) The Great Red Spot of Jupiter, centered at 22 degrees south and spaning 12 degrees in latitude and 25 degrees in longitude, exhibitswind speeds of 100m/sec. The planets radius is 71,400 km and the rotation rate is 1.763 x 10-4 sec-1. Is the Great Red Spot influenced by the planet's rotation? Justify!


The Shallow water wave problem which I do not feel like typing in but will if needed!
