How is the Gulf Stream affected by ocean currents?

This strong current of warm water influences the climate of the east coast of Florida, keeping temperatures there warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer than the other southeastern states. Since the Gulf Stream also extends toward Europe, it warms western European countries as well.

How will warm waters moving up from the Gulf Stream most likely affect the local weather conditions on a North Carolina beach?

How will warm waters moving up from the Gulf Stream most likely affect the local weather conditions on a North Carolina beach? The sea breeze will increase in temperature. The sea breeze will decrease in temperature.

Do molecules move faster in hot or cold air?

The molecules of hot air move faster than the molecules of cold air. The molecules of hot air move slower than the molecules of cold air. The molecules of hot air move at the same speed as the molecules of cold air.

Do molecules move slower when cold?

The molecules of cold water move slower than the molecules of hot water. The molecules of cold water move at the same speed as the molecules of hot water. It is not possible to say anything about how the molecules differ without more information.

Is hot or cold more powerful?

“Stronger” means the capacity to produce a larger effect. Both “cold” and “hot” have limits in one direction. So there is a limit to how far “cold” can go, but no limit to how hot something can become. So from this point of view, we might consider hot to be stronger.

What happens to molecules when cooled?

If water is cooled enough it can change to ice. If ice is warmed enough, it can change to liquid water. Heating a substance makes the molecules move faster. Cooling a substance makes the molecules move slower.

What is the difference between hotness and coldness?

Hotness is due to the high temperature and hence high kinetic energy of molecules in it. And Coldness is due to the very low temperature and hence very low or negligible kinetic energy of molecules in it.

What month is the ocean warmest?

Land masses in the northern hemisphere are at their coldest in January and at their warmest in mid-July. The sea, however, lags behind; it reaches its extreme values of temperature about a month later in each case, being coldest in February and warmest in late August.

How many degrees will pool drop overnight?

5 degrees F

Why does water at a beach feel cooler than beach sand during the day and warmer at night?

Another reason water will be cooler than the sand on a hot day is because as the water absorbs some heat from the sun, the ocean is still deep. However, water does not release heat that fast so the heat will stay in it for a while and the night breeze will cause it to be warmer than the sand at night.

Which samples will heat up faster?

In solids, the intermolecular force of attraction is very high. Whereas, in liquids the intermolecular force of attraction is somewhat less than solids. so when you heat, less amount of heat can free the molecules in liquids than solids and hence they heat faster.

Which gets hotter faster sand or water?

The sand should both heat and cool faster than the water. This is because water has a higher specific heat ca- pacity than sand – meaning that it takes a lot of heat, or energy, to raise the temperature of water one degree, whereas it takes comparatively little energy to change the temperature of sand by one degree.

How will you compare the heat capacities of soil and water in terms of their temperatures?

The specific heat of water is greater than that of dry soil, therefore water both absorbs and releases heat more slowly than land. This causes land areas to heat more rapidly and to higher temperatures and also to cool more rapidly and to lower temperatures, compared to oceans.

Why do metals have low heat capacities?

– they don’t. Metal atoms in pure metal are very close together and are able to transfer heat easily via conduction from one atom exciting the other atoms next to it. So the amount of energy it takes to heat a metal is relatively small to that of water for example.
