The cooler will warm up the water in the reservoir until it is boiling, then it will turn off. After a couple of minutes, it will turn back on again and heat the water till its boiling again. That's why the water is always hot because the cooler is constantly heating it up like if you kept turning a kettle on.

Why does land heat up more quickly than water?

When you heat up water in the ocean, that heated water tends to just get mixed into the surrounding cooler water, so you have to heat a lot of water to make the ocean heat up. Solid land doesn't mix with lower layers, it stays put, normally.

Why does a glass of salt water get cooler as the salt dissolves in the water?

For the breaking of a salt in water heat is required (endothermic process) the salt absorbs heat from water and water from glass so glass seems to be cooler.

What effects does a large body of water change the climate in Alaska?

If there is warm water, it can actually heat up the coast of Alaska if there is cold water, the coast is cooler.

Which type of heat transfer occurs in a pot of water when less dense heated water rises to the water's surface and displaces the more dense cooler water at the top causing the cooler water to sink to?

The heat transfer is by conduction.

How do you eliminate heat?

you can remove heat but cannot totally eliminate it. Ways to remove heat: * convection -- blow cooler air or dry ice over the object or place it inside an ice box * conduction -- put the object in cooler water * radiation -- leave it in a cooler surrounding The key word is 'cooler,' which means you can remove heat when you have a cooler medium to dump the heat.

Does air over land heat up faster than air over water?

land haets up faster then does the water because water will evaporate that causes the air above will become cooler

How does water moderate temperature?

Water moderate air temperature by absorbing heat from air that is warmer, and releasing the stored heat to air that is cooler.

Why is land hotter than water?

Land is hotter than water because of how it absorbs heat. Water does not experience temperature fluctuations like lands does, so it ends up storing heat energy longer while feeling cooler.

Why is the climate cooler near a body of water?

because water absorbs heat when it evaporates, that's why you sweat.

When water evaporates why does the air near the water's surface cooler?

Evaporation is an endothermic process and absorb heat

Which will heat up faster on a hot day a desert or a lake and why?

The desert will heat up faster than a lake. The sand particles have greater thermal conductivity and hence will take up heat faster than water molecules which do not take up heat as easily. It is also the reason why it is cooler at the sea side.

Does heat flow cooler or smaller object?

Heat flow's from cooler objects.
