What’s thermal inertia?

Expert Solution
To determine

The definition of thermal inertia.

Explanation of Solution

The properties of water that are operated to moderate the change in temperature are described as thermostatic properties. The word “thermo” means heat and “stasis” means standing still. When the energy of the Sun is absorbed and it changes to heat, the temperature of water increases...
