Statement of a problem № 41721


The air temperature above coastal areas is profoundly influenced by the large specific heat of water. One reason is that the energy released when 1 m3 of water cools by 1°C will raise the temperature of a much larger volume of air by 1°C. Find this volume of air. The specific heat of air is approximately 1 kJ/kg$ °C. Take the density of air to be 1.3 kg/m3.
