A parcel is $$0.5$$ degrees Celsius0.5 °C is released at the surface in the isothermal layer. How high does the parcel rise before it descends back? I know what an isothermal layer is and I know that the parcel will rise until it reaches the surrounding air temperature. I am just not sure how or which formula I would use to solve the problem.
