explain how the lack of atmosphere moisture in california's mohave desert causes a large daily temperature range.

  • science - ,

    The heat capacity of water is quite large, meaning that relatively large amounts of energy are required to raise the temperature of water or to cool it. With very low amounts of moisture in the air, the air can heat up and cool down much faster (than if it had water in it); therefore, we would expect relatively large ranges in the temperature from day to night.
