## 24 terms

the direct transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves

### Conduction

the direct transfer of heat from one substance to another substance that it is touching

### Convection

the transfer of thermal energy by the movement of a fluid

### Land breeze

the flow of air from land to a body of water

### Sea breeze

the flow of cooler air from an ocean or lake to land

### Heat

transfer of thermal energy from one object to another because of a difference in temp.

### Why are shore breezes caused by the uneven heating and cooling of land and water.

Sand heats up faster than water so the heat rises above the sand.So then the cold air comes into take its place. THe opposite at night.

### Warm front

a warm air mass overtakes a slow- moving cold air mass.

### Stationary front

cold and warm air masses meet, but neither can move the other.

### Occluded front

a warm air mass is caught between two cooler air masses.

### Cold front

a fast- moving cold air mass overtakes a warm air mass.

### What are the 3 ways we popped popcorn

Put it in the micro- wave= radiation, air popper= convection, pot= conduction.

### How do theheating and cooling rates of sand and water compare

The heating and cooling rates of sand and water compare because sand heats up faster and cools down faster but the water heats up slower and cools down slower.
