What are 10 interesting facts about Earth?

  • Plate Tectonics Keep the Planet Comfortable:
  • Earth is Almost a Sphere:
  • Earth is Mostly Iron, Oxygen and Silicon:
  • 70% of the Earth’s Surface is Covered in Water:
  • The Earth’s Atmosphere Extends to a Distance of 10,000 km:
  • The Earth’s Molten Iron Core Creates a Magnetic Field:

What is so special about the Earth?

It has a solid and active surface with mountains, valleys, canyons, plains and so much more. Earth is special because it is an ocean planet. Water covers 70 percent of Earth’s surface. Earth’s atmosphere is made mostly of nitrogen and has plenty of oxygen for us to breathe.

Which planet has most oxygen?


How do Earth look like?

From space, Earth looks like a blue marble with white swirls. Some parts are brown, yellow, green and white. The blue part is water. Mapmakers use the line to divide Earth into two halves.

How long will the earth live?

4.5 billion years

Does the Earth lose mass?

Mass loss is due to atmospheric escape of gases. About 95,000 tons of hydrogen per year (3 kg/s) and 1,600 tons of helium per year are lost through atmospheric escape. The main factor in mass gain is in-falling material, cosmic dust, meteors, etc. are the most significant contributors to Earth’s increase in mass.

Can the earth gain or lose energy?

Since Earth is surrounded by the vacuum of outer space, it cannot lose energy through conduction or convection. Instead, the only way the Earth loses energy to space is by electromagnetic radiation.

What is the mass of Earth?

5.972 × 10^24 kg

Does the earth weigh more now than before?

People just weigh more and the Earth therefore weighs more. That’s not true. The Earth is an isolated system where all the of the mass that was on it to start with doesn’t go anywhere. Debris, dust and other stuff raining in from space contributes a huge amount of weight to the Earth every single year.

How does energy leave the earth?

Energy leaves the surface through three processes: evaporation, convection, and emission of thermal infrared energy. About 25 percent of incoming solar energy leaves the surface through evaporation. Towers of cumulus clouds transport energy away from the surface of the Earth.

How is energy from the sun transferred to Earth?

All of the energy from the Sun that reaches the Earth arrives as solar radiation, part of a large collection of energy called the electromagnetic radiation spectrum. Solar radiation includes visible light, ultraviolet light, infrared, radio waves, X-rays, and gamma rays. Radiation is one way to transfer heat.

Where does the earth receive most of its energy?

The Sun

How is energy transferred from the sun to water?

When the Sun’s energy moves through space, it reaches Earth’s atmosphere and finally the surface. This transfer of heat energy by the actual movement of the heated molecules is called convection, a method of energy transfer that can take place in fluids like air and water.

What are the three major heat transfer processes?

There are three ways heat is transferred into and through the atmosphere: radiation. conduction. convection.

How can a high energy be transferred to another high energy location?

Heat can be transferred in three ways: by conduction, by convection, and by radiation. Conduction is the transfer of energy from one molecule to another by direct contact.
