Answer 1:
The heat content of the Earthâ€™s atmosphere
would increase by the amount
E= M *Cp* delta T
So the M is the mass of the atmosphere =
5 x 10^{ 18} kg
Cp = heat capacity of air = 1000 J/kg K
delta T = 2 K
Hence energy content increases by 10^{
22} Joules.
This assumes that the entire atmosphere
increases by 2 Kelvin and that we ignore the T effect
of Cp which is small.
