Storyboard Text

  • Today I invited my friend over to my beach house and we are going to hang out together for the rest of the day. (Currently 3:00pm)
  • The thermal energy from the sun's radiation is given to us because of a temperature difference between the two objects which is what heat is. In this case the two "objects" would be the radiation and us humans
  • Yeah, it is really hot here at the beach today
  •  Yeah, that is sort of what the water does around here. It is called Convection when thermal energy or in other words heat is transferred by the motion of the liquid.
  • It was much hotter next to the water during the day, but now it's so much colder and it has only been 4 hours and it is now 7:00pm
  • Also, relating to convection, there is also something called a Convection Current. A Convection Current is the circulation of a fluid as it alternately heats up and cools down.
  • Cold
  • Hot
  • Cold
  • The height of any type of wave is called Amplitude.  The amplitude is the distance from the resting position which is half of the vertical distance from a trough to crest.
  • What is the size of the wave called?
  • Wow, the tide sure has seemed to rise over the past few hours. The waves are also very high right now too.
  • The size of a surface wave is called the Magnitude
  • Okay, is there a name for the length if a wave?
  • Yeah actually, it is called Wavelength which is the distance between successive crests of a wave, especially points in a sound wave or electromagnetic wave. 
  • Do you want to stay overnight tonight?
  • Yeah! That would be great
