Indicate the boiling and melting points of water. What is the heat capacity of water? How does the presence of large quantities of water on Earth affect temperature fluctuations and the climate in general?
The boiling point of pure water is 100 ° C (at a pressure of 101.3 kPa), the melting point is 0 ° C.
Liquid ox has a significant mass specific heat, in comparison with other liquids. At a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and normal atmospheric pressure, the specific heat capacity of water is 4183 J / (kg * deg).
Oceans and seas are an original and natural accumulator of heat on the territory of our planet. Water heats up slowly due to its high heat capacity, but nevertheless the cooling process is much slower. This makes it possible to accumulate heat in the oceans and seas in the summer, and the release of heat occurs in the winter, which is why there is no sharp drop in air temperature on our planet throughout the year.
