temperature a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object
heat thermal energy that flows from something at a higher temperature to something at a lower temperature
thermal energy sum of the kinetic and potential energy of all the particles in an object
convection transfer of thermal energy in a fluid by the movement of warmer and cooler fluids
conduction transfer of thermal energy by particle collisions (direct contact)
radiation transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves
joule unit of measurement for energy
specific heat the amount of heat needed to raise 1 gram of a substance 1 degree Celsius
endothermic energy is absorbed in the form of heat
exothermic energy is released in the form of heat
