Lesson 6: Wind velocity
  • Winds begin with differences in air-pressures.
  • Pressure that is higher at one place than another sets up a force pushing from the high toward the low pressure.
  • The greater the difference in pressures, the stronger will be the wind force.

Lesson 6: Wind velocity
  • The distance between the area of high pressure and the area of low pressure also determines how fast the moving air is accelerated i.e. Wind velocity.
  • Wind velocity includes both wind speed and wind direction.
  • Wind velocity is measured using anemometer in a weather station.

Lesson 6: Wind velocity

Anemometer

  • Cup anemometer is used to measure the wind speed from the speed of rotation of a windmill which consist of 3 or 4 hemispherical or conical cups, each fixed to the ends of horizontal arms attached to a vertical axis.
  • Rotation of cups is transmitted to a technical counter which records the wind speed.
