water has a greater specific heat than sand becasue it takes longer to heat up than sand does

Sand needs least energy to increase the temperature as its specific heat is very low compared to that of water. Water needs more energy to increase its temperature as its specific heat capacity is higher.

low specific heat is like sand and high specific heat is like water at the beach it may be hot outside the water is still cold but the sand is hot as ever.

specific heat is the amount of thermal energy needed to raise the temperature of an object. for example, the water on the beach and the sand on the shore are absorbing the same amount of thermal energy from the sun but the water (which has high specific heat) is cold, and the sand (with low specific heat) is very hot.

sand have low specific heat capacity.

Water has the highest specific heat, sand and granite could be very similar but there are very many types of sand so no definite relationship can be given without more information.

"specific heat" It takes more energy to warm up water than to warm up sand.

The specific heat capacity of sand is much less than that of water. Hence sand cools earlier.

Though sand and soil have the same specific heat, sand absorbs more heat.

There are different kinds of sand, but one of the most common, quartz sand, has a specific heat of 830 (J/kg°C)

Iron has the lowest specific heat, so it will heat up faster.

The desert sand has very low specific heat because it absorbs and releases heat very readily.

1) Sand has less specific heat, 2) It doesn't mix so easily, so the heat basically stays at the surface.

The sand has a lower heat capacity than water. The higher the heat capacity the longer it takes to heat. The sand will heat more easily.

Water has thr capacity to store a lot of heat compared to sand on the beach. Thus the heat stored in the water makes the water warmer.

Sand. it takes more to heat it though.

because sand absorbs heat better than water however water releases heat slower

For the same amount of energy it would be about the same. However, it would also depend on the type of dirt or sand.Reason:The smaller the specific heat the less energy required to heat the object of equal masses but the faster they cool down.Sand has a specific heat capacity of about 800 Joules/ degree/ kilogram whereSoil is about 800 Joules/ degree / kilogram.Water has a specific heat capacity of 4200 J/degree/kgCopper about 390

I think it is an example on convection.

heat the mixture and the water will evaporate leaving the sand

water is good than sand because of molecular structure.

No you cannot separate sand and water with a funnel. You must use the process of evaporation where you heat the mixture of sand and water. When heated the water will begin to evaporate leaving you with the sand.
