QuestionAnswer
What is heat? The amount of particles in a substance.
What types of objects have more heat? Bigger objects.
What is temperature? How fast the particles are moving in a substance.
What is radiation? Energy moving in waves.
What is conduction? Energy moving by particles touching/bumping into each other to transfer heat.
What is convection? Currents of air being warmed, speeding up, rising up, because it is less dense, then cooling, sinking, because it is more dense, and is reheated again to continue the cycle.
What objects absorb more energy? dark colored and rough
What objects reflect more energy? light colored and smooth
Wood is an example of an... insulator
Metal is an example of a... conductor
What do we call a substance that does conduct heat/electricity easily? conductor
What do we call a substance that does not conduct heat/electricity well? insulator
Making a grilled cheese sand which is an example of what type of heat transfer? conduction
Making pop corn is an example of which type of heat transfer? radiation
Boiling a pot of Ramen noodles is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
Making toast is an example of which type of heat transfer? radiation
Butter melting on toast is an example of which type of heat transfer? conduction
The lava flowing in a Lava Lamp is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
Currents of air being heated, speeding up, rising because the current is less dense, then cooling, sinking because it is more dense, and then reheated to create a cycle is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
The transfer of energy through particles touching is called? conduction
The transfer of energy moving in waves is called? radiation
Roasting a marshmallow could be an example of which types of heat transfer? convection, conduction, or radiation
Grilling a steak cold be an example of which types of heat transfer? conduction, convection, radiation
Using a hair dryer is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
Frying bacon is an example of which type of heat transfer? conduction
Using a tanning bed is an example of which type of heat transfer? radiation
Ironing your shirt is an example of which type of heat transfer? conduction
Drying your clothes in the dryer is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
The sun is an example of which type of heat transfer? radiation
If I put a copper rod on a hot plate and heat the rod, that situation is an example of which type of heat transfer? conduction
If heat comes out of the floor vents in my house,this situation is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
If I go to a tanning bed, this situation is an example of which type of heat transfer? radiation
How does energy from the sun get to us? radiation; energy moving in waves
How does energy from a hot pot, heat a spoon that has been left in the pot? conduction; the spoon is touching the bottom of the hot pot, which causes the particles closest to the heat source to speed up/heat up, transferring heat down the length of the spoon.
How do Ramen noodles cook? convection: the water is heated, speeds up, rises up because it is less dense, transfers heat to the noodles, becomes cooler water, which sinks because it is more dense, and then is reheated by the bottom of the hot pot to start the cycle again.
Why do baseball players wear white jerseys? white colored objects reflect energy/heat
Why does a blacktop driveway get so warm during the summer? dark colored objects absorb energy/heat
What has more heat...a lake or a cup of hot coco? A lake because it has more atoms
What has more heat...a lit match or a glacier? A glacier because it has more atoms
What has more heat...a piece of pizza or a turkey? A turkey because it has more atoms
What is radiation? Heat energy moving in waves
What is conduction? Heat energy transferred through touching.
What is convection? Heat energy moving in currents. Air is heated, speeds up, rises, is less dense, cools, sinks, is more dense, re-heated to start the cycle again.
Having your house warmed by a fireplace is an example of which types of heat transfer? radiation or convection
Cooking in a cast iron skillet OVER a campfire is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
Baking cookies, on a metal cooking sheet, is an example of which type of heat transfer? convection
Baking brownies, in a glass pan, is an example of which types of heat transfer? radiation and convection
What method of heat transfer is responsible for you getting a tan in the summer? radiation
What method of heat transfer is responsible for heating our classroom? convection
What method of heat transfer is responsible for a metal poker being heated when it is left sitting in a campfire? conduction
