Mid-term SG

study guide for mid-term exam

when molecules in liquid water absorb energy the water evaporates
when ice melts heat is absorbed
how most of the water enters the atmosphere through evaporation
how sublimation is different from evaporation evaporation - liquid to gas, sublimation - solid directly to gas
why scientists express humidity as a mixing ratio rather than as absolute humidity mixing ratio depends only on mass; doesn't change when temperature or air pressure changes
if vapor pressure increases then the rate of condensation increases
if temperature decreases then the rate of evaporation decreases
if the rate of evaporation is greater than the rate of condensation then evaporation occurs
if the rate of condensation is greater than the rate of evaporation then condensation occurs
most important factor that determines a region's climate latitude
2 main characteristics that describe the climate of an area temperature and precipatation
3 eons that are part of Precambrian time Hadean, Archean, Proterozoic
era we are currently living in Cenozoic Era
where the oldest rock layers are found at the bottom
tectonic plate a piece of the lithosphere
3 types of plate boundaries divergent, convergent, and transform
4 main layers of the sun core, radiative zone, convective zone, and atmosphere
hottest layer of the sun core
3 layers of the sun's atmosphere photosphere, chromosphere, and corona
sunspots cooler regions of the photosphere
why the corona of the sun is visible during a total solar eclipse moon blocks the photosphere
solar flare a sudden eruption of charged particles from the sun
how geomagnetic storms form when particles from a coronal mass ejection disturb Earth's magnetosphere
absolute age age in years
relative age age of an object in relation to the ages of other objects
