Global warming refers to the rise in average global temperature due to the increased concentration of certain
gases, called greenhouse gases, in our atmosphere. Earth¡¯s oceans, because of their high heat capacity, can absorb
heat and therefore act to slow down global warming. How much heat would be required to warm Earth¡¯s
oceans by 1.0 ¡ãC? Assume that the volume of Earth¡¯s oceans is 137 x ¡¼10¡½^7 ¡¼km¡½^3 and that the density of seawater
is 1.03 g/cm3. Also assume that the heat capacity of seawater is the same as that of water.
