Video: Heating of Land and Water

Introduction

How fast land and water heat and cool influences our weather. In Part I of this experiment, you will heat sand and water. You will use two Temperature Probes to see which heats faster. In Part II, you will allow warm sand and warm water to cool. This time you will use two Temperature Probes to see which cools faster. You will then apply your results.

Objectives

In this experiment, you will

  • Measure temperature.
  • Calculate temperature changes.
  • Apply your results.
