Please answer

the questions

on Page 3 of

your Notes


Slide6 l.jpg

Answers:

1. 4600°C, 1.2 million atmospheres (+/- 0.2)

2. oxygen

3. -90°C

4. 0°C

5. 12 km



Slide8 l.jpg

Who uses topographic maps?

the military

miners

police

farmers


Slide9 l.jpg

When might someone

use a topographic

map?

building homes

plan a hiking trip

landscaping

road building



Slide11 l.jpg

Contour

Interval?

20

Elevation of "A"?

540

Elevation of "B"?

580



Slide13 l.jpg

What do hachured

lines show?

areas of

depression


Slide14 l.jpg

What are the rules

concerning hachured lines?

first hachured

line has same

elevation as previous

contour line


Slide15 l.jpg

If north is at the

top of the page, what direction

is this river flowing?

south



Slide17 l.jpg

Name two ways that you can

determine which

way a river flows

on a topographic map.

contour lines point

upstream

rivers flow

downhill


Slide18 l.jpg

What are the steps to draw a

topographic profile

place a piece of paper between the points

mark where every contour line

touches the edge of the paper

determine the elevation of each mark

place the paper on the graph and mark the

elevation of each contour line


Slide19 l.jpg

Using the map and chart below,

construct a topographic map profile.



Slide21 l.jpg

Topographic Maps---Distance Between Points the right.

What is the distance, in kilometers, from Kingston to Oswego?

266 km

What is the distance, in miles, from Plattsburgh to Jamestown?

342 miles


Slide22 l.jpg

The elevation of Albany is 282 feet. the right.

The elevation at Binghamton is 1634 feet.

Calculate the gradient to the nearest tenthof a ft/mi. Show all work.

gradient = change in elevation

distance

= 1634-282

115 miles

= 1352 ft

115 miles

= 11.8 ft/mile


Slide23 l.jpg

The elevation of Watertown is 99m. the right.

The elevation at Oswego is 144m.

Calculate the gradient to the nearest tenthof a m/km. Show all work.

gradient = change in elevation

distance

= 144 - 99

75 km

= 45 m

75 km

= 0.6 m/km


Slide24 l.jpg

If the distance between the right.

the two

circled cities is 425 km,

calculate the temperature

gradient to the nearesthundredth?

Show all work.

gradient = change in temperature

distance

= 82-48

425

= 34

425

= 0.08 °F/km
