Meteorology energy absorption

  1. 1. Meteorology<br />Energy Absorption<br />
  2. 2. As heat energy reaches an object, it can be absorbed<br />This is similar to the way sponges absorb water. <br />Heat enters an object and warms it. <br />The longer the object is exposed to the heat source, the more heat that it absorbs. <br />
  3. 3. An example of heat absorption is the Thanksgiving turkey. <br />When first put into the oven, the Turkey is cool and raw. <br />Slowly as heat is absorbed by the turkey, it becomes hotter and hotter, until the entire bird is cooked, juicy, and ready to eat. <br />
  4. 4. Different objects absorb heat at different rates. <br />Some objects are excellent absorbers, while others are very poor absorbers. <br />4. Dark colors absorb more energy than light colors.<br />Why? Why are dark colors dark in the first place? <br />
  5. 5. Dark colors look dark, because they absorb more light, making them harder to see. <br />
  6. 6. Which shirt is going to make you feel warmer if you are out in the sun? Why? <br />
