Matter and Energy Water is one of many types of matter that vary spatially Various combinations of carbon and iron and calcium and phosphorous and a whole suite of other elements, too, range spatially. The relative availability of each will affect life. Flow of energy (i.e. solar energy or radiant energy and the conversion of this energy to other types) can determine the pattern of ecosystems across the landscape Radiant energy may be converted to heat energy and used to warm the atmosphere and the soil. Radiant energy may be converted to latent energy and used to change the state of water (as you may recall, latent energy is the energy required to change water from a solid to a liquid to a gas

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
