### What happens to the temperature as the angle at which the sun's rays strike earth's surface increases?

Each beam of sunlight has the same amount of energy (which is where we get our warmth). The energy of the sun is more spread accross the Earth's surface with increased angles (oblique). This is what happens at the poles where the sun light hits the Earth at 180 degrees. It is cold at the poles because the sun's energy is spread out over a large area. As the angle of the sun decreases the energy of the sun hits the earth directly and is concentrate. This is what happens when the sun hits the equator at 90 degrees and that is why it is warm at the equator.

### What happens to the energy when sunlight hits earth at an angle smaller than ninety degrees?

THE energy is spread out over a larger area and is less intense

### What happens to the energy from the suns rays that reach earth?

As the sun's rays heat up the earth, the radiation hits the atmosphere. Then the radiation heads back to the sun.

### What happens to the sunlight that hits the surface of the Earth?

Sunlight that hits the Earth's surface is absorbed by the Earth. It is then reflected back.

### Can you show me a bar graph and line graph?

show me what happens when the market for peanut butter after major hurricane hits the peanut-growing south?

### What happens to the different kinds of radiant energy from the sun when it enters earth's atmosphere?

well some of it is refllected back into space by our magnetic field. the rest of it just hits the earth

### What happens when the Sun's solar energy hits Earth?

Earth will get warmed and lit up, that's why we feel warm and can see. If there is no Sun, we will be freezed to death and always darkness is around us.

### What happens to the energy from the sun's rays when it hits the earth?

Part of the energy is reflected back into space, part is absorbed. Most of the absorbed energy is converted to heat, but some can be converted into other kinds of energy, for example, into chemical energy in plant leaves.

### What happens when solar wind hits the earth?

it hits the magnetic feild and is reflected
