Transferring Heat

this happens when particles in an object vibrate in place but collide with particles next to them, giving them kinetic energy conduction
this happens when warm fluids move from one place to another, in a cycle convection
this happens when electromagnetic waves carry energy from a source to another object radiation
substances that transfer heat very poorly insulators
substances that transfer heat very well conductors
the rate or speed at which a substance conducts heat is this thermal conductivity
this is related to the total kinetic energy of all of the particles in a substance heat
this is related to the average kinetic energy of the particles in a substance temperature
the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of something by one degree Celsius specific heat capacity
