# Specific over the water to lower pressure over

Specific heat capacity is how much heat energy is needed raise the temperature
of a substance by 1 degree celsius (°C). As observable particularly when you are at the
beach, water has the high specific heat capacity for which it requires high amount energy
to raise its temperature unlike sand which requires small amount of energy to raise its
temperature.
Precisely, water has to absorb 4.184 Joules of heat for the temperature of one
kilogram of water to increase 1 degree celsius (°C), and sand has only 830 Joules of heat
for the temperature of one kilogram of water to increase 1 degree celsius (°C). This means
that water needs to absorb a lot of energy before its temperature changes and sand
changes its temperature faster because it needs a small amount of energy.
Specific heat capacity has a direct effect on sea breeze. By means of conduction
a sand having a low specific heat capacity means it warms faster which results that the
sand is much warmer compared to water, by that its air is also warm. Water having high
specific heat capacity means that it is cooler compared to sand, by that its air is also
cooler. By that instance we have different temperature of air.
Furthermore, this two different air temperature would result to convection. To
which result to warmer air to goes up and to the cooler air to goes down. Since the warmer
air goes up, then the warmer air leaves the sand making its pressure reduce and making
it as a low pressure area. While the cooler air in the sea is being pushed down making
it to increase the pressure, it means it is the high pressure area. By that the wind will
blow from the higher pressure over the water to lower pressure over the land causing
the sea breeze. The sea breeze strength will vary depending on the temperature
difference between the land and the ocean
Therefore, we can conclude that sea breeze is due to the different specific heat
capacity between sand/land and water/sea.
