Heat/Energy Review

Fahrenheit The measurement unit for temp. used in the US
Conduction Heat transfer through solids-by colliding(direct contact, touch
Radiation Heat transfer through space
Heat Mover Moves thermal energy from one place to another
Heat Engine Device that converts thermal energy to mechanical energy
Insulator Material that heat does not flow easily through
Potential Energy Energy that is stored due to position
Kelvin Unit used to measure very cold temperature
Joule Unit used to measure energy
kinetic energy Energy of motion
Conductor Material that allows heat to flow easily
gravitational Potential Energy stored in object above the Earth's surface(rock on mountain) Ex: Apple falls out of a tree
Law of Conservation of Energy Energy changes form but none is lost-energy remains constant
Absolute Zero Temp where molecules slow to almost stop
Sun bather Radiation
iron on clothes Conduction
soda can burns my hand Conduction
sitting near a fire Radiation
the current crated by warm air rising and cold air sinking Convection
Air rising up the chimney Convection
snow melting in your hand conduction
Nuclear fission Nucleus splitting
fusion Nucleus coming together
what is being created in a nuclear reaction Energy
what 2 factors determine potential energy Height and mass
what is the phase change called when a substance changes from a solid to a liquid Melting
Does the temperature increase during melting? What happens to the heat energy . no, increases
