Lapse rate exercise

A lapse rate exercise:
The ELR is given from the following:
Height: Temp:
0 20
1000 15
2000 12
3000 9
4000 6
5000 3
6500 6
8000 3
A thermal leaves the ground with a temperature of 20’C , dew point is 10’C
What height would you expect cloud base to be?
Draw a diagram to work out how high you expect the clouds to be.(DALR 3’C, SALR 1.5’C, DewPoint lapse rate 0.5’C per 1000ft)
