  8. 8. Unit 1: Energy Earth Science-Ms. Gill Note Packet #2 Specific Heat Worksheet Did you know… Jumping into a pool on a hot summer day is refreshing because the water is cooler than the air around you and the ground under your feet. You may wonder why the water is cooler since the water, air, and ground are being heated by the same source- the Sun. One reason is that it takes more heat energy to raise the temperature of some substances than others. The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of a substance by 1 degree Celsius is called the specific heat of that substance. Water has a specific heat of 4.18 meaning it take 4.18 Joules of energy to raise 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius. This value is high compared to the specific heats for other materials, such as various rocks or metals. Note the scientific unit for energy is the Joule. See the front of your ESRT for a complete list of specific heats for common materials. Now complete these practice questions! 1. What substance has the highest specific heat? ____________________________ 2. Why do metals have low specific heats? __________________________ 3. Why are pans made of metals with low specific heats? _____________________________ ______________________________________________________________________ 4.

  12. 12. Unit 1: Energy Earth Science-Ms. Gill Note Packet #2 Electromagnetic Spectrum Notes The Sun gives off light and heat in the form of _________________ and __________________ Sun electromagnetic energy. However, the short wavelengths (dangerous UV radiation, gamma rays & x- rays) are mostly absorbed by the ozone so they don’t reach earth’s surface. The ozone layer is found in the ____________________ layer of the atmosphere. Visible light passes through earth’s atmosphere with the greatest intensity. Less than half of the incoming solar radiation is received by the earth’s surface. The energy that does get through our atmosphere is absorbed by earths surface. The earth’s surface in turn reradiates the energy in the form of heat called Earth ________________ radiation. J. Interactions between Electromagnetic Energy & the Environment: 1. _______________________UV absorbed by the ozone, infrared absorbed by carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, and nitrous oxide. Good absorbers are good re-radiators! 2. _______________________ by clouds, ice, snow and water 3. ____________________ by aerosols, water droplets, ice crystals, pollutants, dust, pollen 4. _______________________ light is bent as it moves through varied densities 5. _______________________ when energy passes straight through a medium Less than __________________ of the incoming solar radiation is received by the Earth. Surface properties of the Earth & Absorption of Energy: 1. Color: Light (white) reflects & dark (black) absorbs Example: Pavement warms before grassy lawns. 2. Texture: Rough surface absorbs & smooth surface reflects Example: Snow and Ice reflect Insolation and remain cold. Page:____

You might often hear about the green house affect and its association with Global Warming. In the atmosphere, CO2, Methane and H2O, (the greenhouse gases) act like the glass in the greenhouse by trapping heat. These gases very similar manner as the glass sides and roof of a greenhouse keep in heat. Let’s see how this works… Short wave radiation like ___________ passes through the glass of a greenhouse and is _______________ by the objects inside the greenhouse. These objects __________________ the energy as ____________________, which get reflected back into the greenhouse and warms the air. In Earth’s atmosphere, there are many gases that act like the glass of a greenhouse and ________ long-wave radiation, keeping it in the Earth’s Atmosphere. Therefore, holding that heat in the atmosphere and raising the global temperature. These are known as ______________________. Earth They include water vapor, CFCs, Ozone, Methane Gas and Carbon dioxide. Without some greenhouse gases, the Earth would be too _____________ for us to survive. But an overload of greenhouse gases creates a problem as well! How does too much CO2 contribute to Global warming? _______________________________ What human activities contribute to CO2 production and an increase in the greenhouse effect? _________________________________________________________________________ If present trends continue possible effects may include: -Rising sea levels due to melting polar ice caps; -Increasing frequency and severity of storms and hurricanes; -More frequent heat waves and droughts; and -Relocation of major crop growing areas.
