When air is heated in a small jar the temperature obviously rises. When the temperature (aka Kinetic energy) is also rising. This means the molecules are speeding up and colliding more often. Therefore the pressure exerted on the sides of the jar is increased as well.

Why does placing a jar under warm running water help loosen the lid?

There are two ways that putting a jar under warm water helps loosen the lid. When heated, materials expand. So the air in the jar could expand, reducing any internal suction. Secondly, the metal cap could expand so as to not have as much friction with the rest of the jar.

If an alarm clock is in a jar filled with air what happens if all the air sucked out of the jar?

The alarm would be much quieter, as sound can't travel through vacuum. But if it's a mechanical alarm clock then vibrations would be transferred from the clock to the jar and then to whatever the clock is standing on , and you'd probably be able to hear some of that.
