  • Q12
    Two identical beakers containing water, which have not yet been placed in the sun, have different volumes of water. Beaker "Y" has more water than beaker "X". If both beakers are placed outside, in the sun, for the same amount of time, what effect will the sun have on the water in each beaker?
    The water in beaker "X" will heat faster because the density of the water is lower.
    The water in beaker "Y" will heat faster because the density of the water is greater.
    The water in beaker "X" will heat faster because the volume of the water is lower.
    The water in beaker "Y" will heat faster because the volume of the water is greater.

    Heat will travel out of the metal rod and into the water.
    The temperature of the metal rod and the water will both decrease.
    Heat will travel out of the water and into the metal rod.
    The temperature of the metal rod and the water will both increase.
