  1. 1. Heating the Earth Energy From the Sun
  2. 2. Where We Get Our Energy <ul><ul><li>The Sun is a major source of energy for Earth. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 4. Forms of Energy <ul><ul><li>Different forms of energy include heat, light, electrical, mechanical, sound, nuclear, and chemical. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 6. Electromagnetic Energy <ul><ul><li>Different forms of electromagnetic energy have different wavelengths. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Examples of electromagnetic energy are: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>microwaves </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>infrared light </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>visible light </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ultraviolet light </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>X-rays </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>gamma rays. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 8. Electromagnetic Spectrum <ul><ul><li>The entire range of radiant energy, including for example, X-ray, visible light, infrared radiation, radio waves, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The full set of waves that can travel through space; includes not only visible light but shorter waves, such as X -rays, and longer waves, such as radio waves </li></ul></ul>
  6. 10. Changing Energy <ul><ul><li>Energy is transformed in many ways. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 12. Changing Energy <ul><ul><li>Energy can change from one form into another </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the process some energy is always converted to heat. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 14. Conservation of Energy <ul><ul><li>Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but only changed from one form into another. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 15. Heat Energy <ul><ul><li>The energy of a material due to the random motion of its particles (atoms 7 molecules). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Also called thermal energy. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Heat&quot; is used when energy is transferred from one substance to another. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 16. Heat Energy Explains Phases of Matter <ul><ul><li>The motion of particles (atoms & molecules) helps to explain: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the phase (states) of matter </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>changes from one phase to another. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 18. Phases (states) of Matter <ul><ul><li>Gases have neither a determined shape nor a definite volume. Gases assume the shape and volume of a closed container.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Liquids have a definite volume, but take the shape of a container.   </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solids have a definite shape and volume. Particles resist a change in position. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 20. Heat Energy Causes Phase Changes <ul><ul><li>During a phase change, heat energy is absorbed or released. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy is absorbed when: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a solid changes to a liquid (melting) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a liquid changes to a gas (evaporation) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a solid changes directly to a gas (sublimation) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy is released when: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a gas changes to a liquid (condensation) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>a liquid changes to a solid (freezing) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A gas changes directly to a solid, such a forming frost or snow flakes in clouds (crystallization). </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 22. Heat Energy Moves <ul><ul><li>Heat can be transferred through: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>matter by the collision of atoms and/or molecules ( conduction ) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>through space ( radiation .) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>In a liquid or gas, currents will cause the transfer of heat ( convection .) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  14. 24. Heat Energy Moves <ul><ul><li>Heat moves in predictable ways, flowing from warmer objects to cooler ones , until both reach the same temperature </li></ul></ul>
  15. 26. Heat Moves Through the Atmosphere <ul><ul><li>The transfer of energy within the atmosphere results in formation of regions of different densities . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These density differences result in motion. </li></ul></ul>
  16. 27. Heat & Density <ul><ul><li>In fluids (liquids and gases), less dense (cooler) substances can rise and more dense (warmer) substances can sink . </li></ul></ul>
  17. 29. Heat Movement & Density in the Atmosphere <ul><ul><li>The transfer of heat energy within the atmosphere occurs as a result of radiation , convection , and conduction . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Density differences are the basis for many Earth phenomena, including cloud formation and the formation of atmospheric storms. </li></ul></ul>
  18. 31. Heat Movement & Density in the Atmosphere <ul><ul><li>Heating of Earth’s surface and atmosphere by the Sun drives convection within the atmosphere and oceans, producing winds and ocean currents . </li></ul></ul>
  19. 33. Uneven Heating <ul><ul><li>Insolation ( In coming sol ar radi ation ) heats Earth’s surface and atmosphere unequally due to variations in: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>intensity (caused by variations in angle of incidence which vary with time of day, latitude, and season ); </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>characteristics of the surface materials absorbing the energy (such as color, texture, transparency, states of matter, and specific heat); and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>duration which varies with seasons and latitude. </li></ul></ul></ul>

  21. 35. Weather & Seasons <ul><ul><li>Seasons and weather are NOT the same thing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Seasons are caused by: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Earth’s tilt </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Earth’s revolution by around the Sun </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Resulting in the Earth getting different intensities of energy from the Sun (heat & light) at different times of the year </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  22. 36. Weather & Seasons <ul><ul><li>Seasonal changes in weather can be explained using concepts of density and heat energy. These changes include: the shifting of global temperature zones, the shifting of planetary wind and ocean current patterns, the occurrence of hurricanes, monsoons, rainy and dry seasons, flooding, severe weather, and ozone depletion. </li></ul></ul>
  23. 37. Big Science Idea: <ul><ul><li>The atmosphere is an ocean of air that extends hundreds of kilometers about the Earth's surface.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is divided according to temperature into four layers - the troposphere, the stratosphere, the mesosphere, and the thermosphere.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The lowest layer, the troposphere is where air masses form.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air masses have different characteristics because the areas over which they form receive different amounts of heat energy from the sun. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The uneven heating of Earth’s surface is the cause of weather. </li></ul></ul>
