 TRUE or FALSE Black reflects/ White absorbs FALSE Black absorbs/White reflects To transfer energy using convection it must travel thru_________. a. liguids/gases b.solid c. no medium a. liquids/gasses TRUE OR FALSE Planets APPEAR to go backwards (retrograde) as the earth passes them in space. TRUE Define the Heliocentric Model of earth motions. It has a rotating sun at the center, with celestial objects(like earth) revolving around it. Define Geocentric model of the earth's motions. It has a non-moving EARTH as the center of the universe To transfer energy using conduction it must be transfered thru a_________. a. liguid b. solid c. gas d.no medium B. solid Define how energy can be transfered by conduction. Energy can be transfered by conduction in solids by direct molecule contact. Define how energy can be transfered by convection. Energy can be transfered by convection in fluids suchas liguids and gasses because of DENSITY differences. Why does the moon have phases? Because of the angle at which we view its surface. (remember- half is always lit) TRUE or FALSE Energy moves from source to sink? TRUE Energy moves from high to low The closer isolines are the ___________ the slope or gradient. a. steeper b. less c. flatter d. more equal a. steeper TRUE or FALSE Longitude lines go North to South? TRUE The closer a planet is to the sun, the _________ it orbits. a. slower b.longer c. faster c. faster TRUE or FALSE If you were at the Equator you would always have 24 hours of daylight? FALSE 12 hours DEFINE Kinetic Energy Kinetic energy is energy of motion, it increases with velocity. Define how energy can be transfered by radiation. Energy can be transfered by radiation which can occur in a vacuum with no medium, like light. When the earth rotate it goe from _____ to _______ and takes 24 hours. a. north to south b. east to west c. west to east d. south to north C. west to east The earth revolves __________ _________ and it takes 365 1/4 days. a. clock wise b. counter clockwise a counter clockwise TRUE OR FALSE All celestial objects APPEAR to move to the west. TRUE Give me three examples of celestial objects. 1. stars 2. planets 3. moon 4. sun When the sun rises north of east-vertical ray on 23 1/2 degrees North, Tropic of Cancer, and we have 16 hrs of daylight, on June 21 we call this what?? Summer Solstice DEFINE Potential Energy Potential energy is stored energy or at rest, such as the height of an object. The potential energy increases with height. The lower the altitude of the sun, the _____ shadow it casts. a. shorter b. longer c. wider d. thinner b. longer What explains the earth's rotation, the Heliocentic model, or the Geocentric model? Heliocentic Model What are two ways we can prove that the earth rotates? 1. Focault's Pendulun 2. Coriolis Effect When the sun rises south of east-vertical ray on 23 1/2 degrees South, Tropic of Capricorn and we have 8 hrs. of daylight on December 21 we call this the what? Winter Solstice TRUE or FALSE Using the Reference Tables will help you on the Regents exam? TRUE When using Focault's Pendulum to prove the earths rotation the pendulum appears to change its _____________ of swing a. speed b. direction c. focus B. direction TRUE or FALSE When using radiation to transfer energy it can take place in a vacuum? True you need no medium it can take place in a vacuum, an example would be light. Summer solstice is on what day of the year and how many hrs. of daylight do we have? June 21 and we have 16 hrs. TRUE or FALSE Earth is closer to the sun in the winter? TRUE Winter Solstice is on what day of the year and how many hrs. of daylight do we have? December 21 and we have 8 hrs.
