5. Write out the equations you will be using (with variables, not data). 6. When putting numbers into your equations, always include units. 7. Write out each step explicitly. 8. Highlight intermediate answers (e.g. with a squiggly underline). 9. Highlight the final answer differently (e.g. with a box). Make sure your units are appropriate. Ask yourself if the answer makes sense!

We simply multiply the albedo by the average rate of incoming solar radiation to get the solar radiation reflected back into space. Rate of incoming solar radiation reflected back into space = Rate of Incoming Solar Radiation * Albedo The radiation that does not get reflected is assumed to be absorbed. Absorbed solar radiation = Rate of Incoming Solar Radiation - Rate of incoming solar radiation reflected back

We first calculate the volume of the water removed, then convert this volume to mass. For the evaporated water, Volume = Depth * Total Surface Area Calculate the mass of the volume of water evaporated, Mass = Volume * Density

We simply multiply the mass with the ratio given.

    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.
