What happens when the earth's atmosphere traps energy from the sun?
The suns energy when it reaches the earth's atmosphere encounters earth's plasma and three things happens. Some of the energy is reflected , some is absorbed and the rest is transmitted to the earth. ...

What happens to energy in the Sun's convection zone?
Energy is transported outward by the rising of hot plasma and sinking of cooler plasma. ...
Asked in Astronomy
What happens at the atomic level when plasma is created?
A plasma is a gas which has many of its atoms ionized - that is, electrons are separated from the atoms, and the atoms thus have an electric charge. ...
What happens to a fetus if you donate plasma during pregnancy?
It's your plasma that's donated not the fetus's so nothing. Not sure you are allowed as pregnant to do so though. ...
What is atmospheric discharge?
An atmospheric pressure discharge is an electrical discharge in air at atmospheric pressure. An electrical discharge is a plasma, which is an ionized gas. Plasmas are sustained if there is a continuous source of energy to maintain the required degree of ionization and overcome the recombination events that lead to extinction of the discharge. Recombination events are proportional to collisions between molecules and thus to the pressure of the gas. Atmospheric discharges are thus difficult to maintain as they require a large amount of...
What happens if you constantly increase the temperature on a solid- gas or plasma I mean if you infinitely increase the temperature on a gas what is the next phase it will go?
It will change states from a gas to plasma. The order of standard phase is solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. ...
Asked in Laboratory Testing
What happens during a fasting plasma glucose test?
The fasting plasma glucose test requires an eight-hour fast. The person must have nothing to eat or drink except water. ...
