Answer to Question #37947 in Molecular Physics | Thermodynamics for alzahra
Complete the following statement: Most of the heat that is lost to space from the earth occurs by
both conduction and radiation.
both conduction and convection.
Earth is warmed by the Sun. However, while it is turned to Sun. But when it is in the shadow of itvery good. cools rapidly. The Earth'satmosphere smoothes fluctuations in temperature of the Earth surface. And in space emits about the same amount of energy due tothermal radiation, and how much gets. It is therefore clear winter nights colder than clouds partly cloudy-delay back and reflect infrared radiation.
