THERMAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS:
1)One average, which is hotter in the summer, a city far away from any large body of water or a similar city located near a large body of water?
I'm not sure about the reason why, but I think the answer is a city located near a large body of water.
I think this because places such as Israel, California, where they have the ocean, are hotter than places such as London. But I don't know the reason why.
This was a guess...but am I right?
I believe a city located near a large body of water is cooler than one located far from a body of water. First it takes energy to vaporize the water AND there are sea breezes and land breezes that help cool.
