Chapter 6

Temperature Measure of average kinetic energy
Thermal Energy The sum of the kinetic and potential of all the particles in an object
Heat Thermal energy that flows from something at a higher temperature to something at a lower temperature
Specific Heat The amount of heat that is needed to raise the temperature of a 1 kg of water by 1 degree celsius.
Conduction the transfer of thermal energy by collisions between particles in matter. Transfer of thermal energy by direct touch.
Convection Transfer of thermal energy in a fluid by the movement of warmer and cooler fluid from place to place.
Radiation the transfer of thermal energy by electromagnetic waves
Insulator A material in which heat flows slowly.
conductor a substance which allows heat to flow easily.
Solar collectors
thermodynamics The study of the relationship between thermal energy, heat, and work.
First Law of Thermodynamics States that the increase in thermal energy of a system equals the work done on the system plus the heat transferred to the system
Second Law of Thermodynamics States it is impossibe for heat to flow from a cooler object to a warmer object.
