An increase in depth from the surface will be accompanied by an increase in temperature according to the geothermal gradient which will result in a 20-30 C increase for every kilometer of added depth to a certain point, where the rate of increase declines.

What is Jupiter's temperature compared to earth?

At the upper edge of the cloud cover, the temperature is thought to be -145 degrees C. On Jupiter the temperature increases because of atmospheric pressure, so as you descend temperature increases. Not far into the atmosphere the pressure is about ten times what it is here on Earth and the temperature is thought to be about 20 degrees C or average room temperature for Earth. Descend further and the temperature is thought to be over 9,700 C.s

As you go deeper into the earth what increases?

temperature and pressure density and the force of gravity

How temperature affects the pressure of a gas?

As temperature increases pressure of the gas increases because when temperature increases the gas expands results in increase in pressure. Temperature,pressure and volume are so related with gas As volume increases pressure of gas decreases, As pressure increases the temperature of the gas increases, As temperature increases pressure increases,

What kind of energy increases when temperature increases?

As temperature increases thermal energy increases.

When the temperature of a gas at constant volume increases its pressure increases?

Temperature increases as pressure increases.

What happens to the temperature as you move from the crust towards the core of the earth?

The temperature increases. The average geothermal gradient is 25C/Km

How does solubility vary with temperature?

it increases as temperature increases

Does temperature increases as the average kinetic energy increases?

Yes, temperature increases as kinetic energy increases.

How does high temperature affect the secondary structure of a protein?

Input of energy (by increase in temperature) increases the kinetic energy of the atoms in the protein. As they vibrate more, the interactions between the atoms involved in secondary structure become disrupted and this causes the structure to denature.

What will happen to the pressure when temperature increases?

As pressure increases, temperature increases and volume decreases.

As the temperature of a gas increases the pressure decreases?

As the temperature of a gas increases the pressure increases.
