The specific heat capacity of water at normal atmospheric pressure and temperatures close to 0 ° С is equal to 4200 J / (kg * K) What consequences could be expected in climate change and human life if the specific heat capacity of the hearth were significantly lower? Illustrate the answer with examples.
Water belongs to substances that have a high specific heat capacity. Note that water occupies 3/4 of the Earth’s surface. The water in the seas and oceans, heating up in summer, absorbs a significant amount of heat. Therefore, in places located close to the sea, it is not as hot in summer as in places far from the water. In winter, water, cooling down, gives the surrounding bodies a corresponding amount of heat. This is due to the mild coastal climate.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
