Explain how does water's high heat capacity influences the earth's climate?
absorbtion and release of heat when hydrogen bonds break and form
Water has a high specific heat due to hydrogen bonding, which increases intermolecular forces between molecules
It is 4.184 Joules/g/deg.
High Heat Capacity of Water · * Because most organisms on this planet are mostly made up of water, it is important that water has a high heat capacity because it enab…les organisms to resist drastic temperature changes. · * Another example of the high heat capacity of water is how the water in ponds and lakes acts when the weather changes. When it gets hot, the water does not boil because of this high heat capacity. Hope this helps! XD
absorption and release of heat when hydrogen bonds break and form
In coastal regions, much of the suns heat is absorbed by water. The high specific capacity keeps the water from increasing temperature and keeps the air cool.
heat the high specific heat of water will effect the climate because it is able to store a large amount of heat, which means that there is less heat in the atmosphere. hence… the weather is cooler.
1. Fomentation: Hot water bottles are used for fomentation, as the water remains hot in the bottle for a long time in spite of giving off large quantities of heat. 2. Car radi…ators: Water is used as coolant car radiators. Due to its high specific heat capacity, it can absorb a large amount of heat energy from the engine of the car, but its temperature does not rise too high. 3. Bottled Wines: In cold countries, wine bottles re kept under water. Due to the high specific heat capacity of water, it takes a long time for the temperature to fall to 00 C. 4. Land and sea breezes: The specific heat capacity of water is about five times more than that of sand. It therefore, takes a much longer time to heat and to cool with respect to sand. During the day, the land cools faster than the sea. The hot air from the sea rises while the cool air from the sea moves to take its place, giving rise to a sea breeze. During the night, the land cools faster than the sea. The hot air from the land moves to take its place, giving rise to a land breeze. 5. Cooking utensilsCooking utensils are made of metal which has low specific heat capacity so that it need less heat to raise up the temperature. Handles of cooking utensils are made of substances with high specific heat capacities so that its temperature won't become too high even if it absorbs large amount of heat. 6. Protection of crops: Farmers generally fill their field with water during winter season at night to protect the crops from frost. In the absence of water, if on a cold night the temperature of the surroundings fall below 00C, then the veins of the plants shall freeze. Due to anomalous expansion of water, ice shall occupy more volume than water. as a result of this expansion, veins shall burst and crops shall be destroyed. But water sprinkled on the crops shall not allow the temperature of the veins to fall below 00C.
Water's surface tension and heat storage capacity is accounted by its Hydrogen Bonds
It keeps our blood liquid, in addition to many other things.
The ocean currents carry it ................................................if i knew I wouldn't tell you suckers ;)
It helps the body remove heat through sweating, and it also allows it to use water as an energy source.
