    • B. 

      How quickly wind can freeze an object

    • C. 

      The ability for wind to make your body lose heat faster, and make you feel as if the temperature is lower then it actually is

  • 3. 
    What happens to the wind chill index as wind speeds get higher
    • A. 

      Nothing, since wind cannot actually lower the temperature of the outside air

    • B. 

      The wind chill temperature gets warmer because the faster the wind goes the warmer is circulated and the temperature rises

    • C. 

      The wind chill temperature gets colder because as the wind gets faster it makes your body lose heat faster thus it feels colder
