In this lab experience, students carry out an investigation to determine how albedo and specific heat influence how fast temperature change occurs in a substance by measuring the temperature change in several samples placed under a heat lamp. By completing this investigation, students gain a better understanding of how the angle at which the Sun’s rays strike Earth, albedo and the composition of surface materials are all factors that contribute to the temperature variations observed on Earth.
