Does soil cannot retain heat?
Soil both absorbs and retains heat. The length of time soil retains its heat is dependent upon the amount of moisture or water in the soil.
Ceramic is a porous material. It has many small air pockets in it which help to reduce heat conduction. The heat does not transfer easily to air so the transfer is held back by these pockets and the heat is retained in the contained liquid or material. The atomic structure of ceramic accounts for its ability to retain heat due to the configuration of bound atoms or ions. A more crystalline structure will have less…
Among many possibilities, three results from poor soil management include pollution (i.e., from excessive or erroneous use of chemicals), erosion (i.e., if the soil cannot support life, than there will not be anything to retain water, either from precipitation or underground sources), and carbon loss (i.e., greenhouse effect).
Water absorbs and conducts radiation better. ex. electricity is a form of radiation this is false because water will take longer to absorb heat than soil but when the source of heat is gone the water will insulate more heat than the soil, therefore the water will keep heat longer than soil but the soil will heat up faster.
