Kinetic energy causes disposition in the state of a substance. For instance, heat energy on a block of ice changes it first into water and finally into water vapor.
Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research on kinetic energy and how energy requirements change. Based on your research, respond to the following:
- Describe the process that ice on Mount Everest goes through when being heated from 10o Fahrenheit to 305oKelvin. Explain how the energy requirements change at different steps of the heating curve. What are the energy transfers that happen in the ice on Mount Everest?
- How might temperature changes in the human body have an impact on human health? (Use an example to help illustrate your understanding). The human body goes through various temperature changes during a single day. Would you agree? Would this mean that the temperatures are not normal? Also, study the various temperature states that are commonly called, for example, fever.
