thermal energy

Thermal energy is a form of energy that can be transferred as well as converted

Specific heat Is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1Kg of that material by 1 degree Celsius.
Thermal Energy Equation change in thermal energy (J) = mass(kg)x temperature change(°C)x specific heat (J/kg x °C )
Conduction Transfer of thermal energy by collision between particles that make up matter.
Convection Transfer of thermal energy in a fluids by the movement of warmer and cooler fluids.
Radiation Transfer of thermal energy by electromagnetic waves, like light or a microwave.
Thermodynamics Study of relationship between thermal energy , heat and work
First law of thermodynamics If the mechanical energy of a system is constant the increase in thermal energy transfers into that system and the work done on that system
Second law of thermodynamics Energy spontaneously spreads from regions of higher concentration to lower concentrations.
Heat engine Device that converts some thermal energy into mechanical energy
Internal combustion engine Heat engine that burns fuel inside a set of cylinders
