They have asked for the wrong description right? So according to B convection cannot occur in gases. Then how can sun transfer heat through convection .
Rushwr
  • Rushwr
Cuz it clearly says that sun is made of gases and it transfer heat through convection right?

@Rushwr Aren't they asking for a statement that /proves/ that "heat reaches the earth via convection" is incorrect?

INCORRECT description of how the sun transfers heat to Earth?

@Rushwr That is the latter part of the sentence: Which explains WHY THIS (referring to the "convection via sun" i assume) is an INCORRECT description

It clearly says that the sun transfers heat through convection. So they are asking for the incorrect answer regarding the heat transfer.

"A student thinks that because the sun is made of gas, it transfers heat to Earth by convection" I believe that the "incorrect" the question refers to is the incorrectness of the students hypothesis. Heat does not travel via convection in space, space is a vacuum.

So I think they're asking you which statement /proves/ that the "convection hypothesis" is incorrect.

@Rushwr It's okay, I've misread many a problem as well haha. I think the answer is C: Earth can only receive heat in the form of radiation Tempted to say A, but there isn't /zero/ matter in space so I don't think that's right. @madiiharrell Could you update us on this question when you get the answer to it please?
