In what layer of the atmosphere is the Ozone layer? How does it affect the temperature of that layer? a. Stratosphere i. One big temperature inversion and Acts a lid for weather ii. Air parcels doesn’t easily rise in the stratosphere Due to Ozone Layer iii. Ozone molecules absorb energy from ultraviolet “light” coming from the Sun. They turn that energy into heat. 46.

What is the name of the type of energy that is transmitted from the Sun? How is the energy transmitted (shape) from the Sun to Earth? How fast does it travel? a. Nuclear Energy is converted to Heat Energy and most is emitted as Radiant Energy which travels to Earth in the form of waves b. Small portion of this radiant energy is intercepted by the Earth-atmosphere system and converted to other forms such as heat and kinetic energy of the winds 48.

    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.
