7. Imagine you are at a local water park on a hot summer day and your feet begin to get hot from the cement. Looking ahead, you notice that there are two paths you can take to your favorite waterslide. One path is comprised of sand while the other path consists of water. You opt for the water path because you know it will be cooler on your feet. Assuming that both paths were exposed to the same heat source (the sun) and that both paths have the same mass, explain why water does not get as hot as sand. (2 points) Sand has more thermal conductivity than water does, so when heat is transferred to the sand or water, the sand conducts the heat more leading to a higher temperature. The specific heat of water is 4.182 kJ being greater than the specific heat of sand which is .83 kJ and this causes the water to cool quicker than sand. Sand contains color, so the radiation will be heated higher than the water because water is colorless prevent it to get hot .

    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.
