What is calorie? The quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water by 1 degree Celsius.
What is Celsius scale? A temperature scale on which zero equals the temperatler that water breezes and 100 is the temperature that water boils.
What is conduction? The transfer of thermal energy by the direct contact of particles of matter.
What is covection? The transfer of thermal energy by the actual motion of a fluid in the form of currents.
What is Fahrenheit scale? A temperature scale on which water freezes at 32 degrees and water boils at 212 degrees.
What is the first law of thermodynamics? States that energy in a closed system is conserved.
What is heat? The flow of thermal energy from one object to another object due to a temperature difference.
