5. What is jet stream?
At heights between 25,000 & 40,000 ft., a tubular current by air may form,with a very high wind speed called a jet stream.
6. How eddies are formed in air?
Eddies are created in air when the flow meets a sharp discontinuity on theearth’s surface, such as a tree, a building on a mountain.
7. What are called as aerodynamic and semi-aerodynamic?
Few natural or manmade objects do not cause an eddy are called asstreamlined or aero dynamic.eg) calm sea, high speed aircraft.Shapes which make less eddies than other shapes and sizes are called semi-aerodynamic.
8. Define gust and lull?
When the wind speed reaches a peak, it is called as a gust, and its minimumspeed it is termed as lull.
