Which of the Earth’s layers is the least dense?

a. the crust b. the mantle

c. the outer core d. the inner core

The outer core is a liquid. Liquids are less dense because the molecules are not tightly packed together. They move more freely.

True or False

Condensation is the process in which a liquid changes to a gas.


2. Dew point is the temperature to which air must cool before the air becomes saturated.


3. The dew observed on grass forms on hot, cloudy, windless nights.

1. What is a natural resource?

(chapter 5 section 1)

A natural material that is used by humans.

2. What is the difference between non-renewable and renewable resources?

Renewable can be replaced at the same rate it is used.

Non-renewable forms at a much slower rate then the rate it is consumed.

3. Sort into two groups: renewable and non-renewable.

oil wood coal sunlight wind water natural gas

Oil, coal, natural gas wood, sunlight, wind, water

1. What is biomass?

Organic matter that can be a source of energy.

Examples: wood, animal dung, plant alcohol(sugars that are stored in plants)
