If a major hurricane can generate 1.25 x 10 to the 19th power calories of energy per day, and this energy comes from condensation, how many liters of water must condense each day to form hurricane clouds and precipitation?

  • Earth Science -

    Divide the energy release by the energy release per mass when water condenses. That will give you the number of kg. Each kg occupies 1 liter.
