Physical Science

Measure of the average kinetic energy of all the particles in an object. Temperature
Sum of the kinetic and potential energy of the particles in an object; is transferred by conduction, convection, and radiation. Thermal Energy
Thermal energy that flows from a warmer material to a cooler material. Heat
Amount of thermal energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 kg of a material 1 degree Celsius. Specific Heat
the transfer of thermal energy by co Conduction
the transfer of thermal energy in a fluid by the movement if warmer and cooler fluid from one place to place. Convection
the transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves. Radiation
a material in which heat flows slowly. Insulator
absorb radiant energy from the sun Solar collector
the study of the relationship among thermal energy,heat,and work. Thermodynamics
the increase in thermal energy of a system equals the work done on the system plus the heat transferred to the system. First Law of Thermodynamics
it is possible for heat to flow from cooler object to warmer object unless work is done. Second Law of Thermodynamics
the heat engine in cars. in which fuel is buried inside the engine in chambers or cylinders. Internal Combustion Engine
