Why Does a Person Tan/Burn Faster on a HOT Day?
Why does a person tan/burn faster on a hot day?

For instance, let's take a random date...let's say April 5. Let's say the high temperature for April 5 is 90 degrees.

Let's say the next day (April 6), the high temperature is 68 degrees.

A person will tan/burn faster on the hotter day (April 5), even though the sun is the same distance from the earth, and the person is in the same location on both days. Only the temperature is different.

Why is this?

I forgot to add that there would be no clouds on either day. Just sunshine.

I don't entirely by the UV only thing. Sunburns are burns. Yes you can burn due to UV light only, but additional heat increases the risk, it has to.

Hmmmm, interesting. That's the answer I got from someone I know, too, when I asked him this. But I think we all know from experience that you tan/burn quicker when it's hotter out. I would bet money on it. I can remember times when I have.

Hmmmm...something fishy about this.

The reason I asked if it was a trick question is because despite the UV thing, yeah, fishy, heat burns. UV light vs UV light and heat seams like a no brainer. No doubt the 1 star bandit thought the same thing. Wasn't me though.

Ya, it seems simple until you really ponder it. I agree, I think heat HAS to come into play. And if it does, then the question becomes: What makes a day HOTTER than another? It could be high pressure, a wind pattern, etc. So in effect, high pressure or the wind pattern can ultimately be responsible for a person tanning/burning quicker (besides the U.V. factor, of course).

Re: Why Does a Person Tan/Burn Faster on a HOT Day?
Hmmmm...I don't know. Now I have lots of ideas going through my head.

In the "mountain west" states -- Arizona, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico -- it's not uncommon for there to be a day with a high temp of, say, 65 degrees; and then the next day a high of 85. I have to think that a person would tan/burn faster on the hotter day (even if both days were sunny and cloudless). Maybe I'm wrong. But I seem to remember personal experiences of this being outdoors on two consecutive days when the temperatures were pretty drastically different.

I know very little about the ozone layer and shit, but i'm sure the ozone layer moves around the earth. Therefore, if there was a hole in the ozone layer above you one day, there would be more heat (radiation) get through to your body. The next day, that hole may have moved, or the thickness of the ozone layer may be different, therefore giving a different temperature...and shit...

I dunno. I'll go back to playing xbox now...

If you burn your body suffers from micro-nutrient and vitamin deficiency. Simple as that. I am fair skinned and I walk around in the summer with just shorts on during my leisure time. I never burn, no matter how long I am out in the sun.

Fruits, vegetables, and supplements like Beyond Tangy Tangerine, coupled with whey protein do the trick.

I would think that when it is hot you're getting hit with more "rays" from the sun. When it's colder, for whatever reason, there isn't the same volume of rays available for you to soak up.

Your question could also be worded as why is it hot some days and cold others even when the distance from the sun is equal, there is an equal number of clouds, et cetera.

Dunno though. >_>

Uh, where is your proof, or even evidence that one burns/tans faster on a hot day than on a non-hot day? If you want to ask this particular question, you need to first offer at least some documented evidence that what you are postulating is, in fact, true.

Until then, this is a stupid question.

Of course it's true. Simply test it out for yourself. Science is about testing. Everyone knows you tan/burn faster on a hot day.

My question is: If the sun is no closer (in relation to its rays striking the earth) between 2 consecutive days, and if there are no clouds on either day, what is the cause of the quicker tan/burn?
