A snake is sunning itself on a rock. (a) If the snake is 0.3 m long, what is the approximate amount of radiation it absorbs from the sun in 10 minutes? (b) If no heat flows out of the snake via conduction or by evaporative cooling, how much does its temperature increase during 10 min? Assume all the sun’s energy goes into heating the snake and the specific heat of the snake is equal to the specific heat of water
