Unformatted text preview: energy of radiation emitted by the earth. 10. What is sensible heat? What is latent heat? What is heat capacity? 11. Contrast the latent heat of fusion with latent heat of vaporization? How do the values of these latent heats compare to the heat capacity of liquid water? 12. Contrast the processes of heat convection and heat conduction in soils. Which is dominant? Why? What is the general form of the equations for heat convection and heat conduction, and what do the terms mean? 13. Which has higher heat conductivity, a wet soil or a dry soil? Why? 14. Which has higher heat conductivity, a saturated sandy, quartz-rich soil or a saturated organic soil? Why? 15. Which has higher heat capacity, a wet soil or a dry soil? Why?...
