Heat and Thermal Energy

the amount of potential and kinetic energy in matter thermal energy
stored energy potential energy
energy in motion kinetic energy
the transfer of thermal energy from a warm object to a cool object heat
the transfer of thermal energy due to direct contact conduction
conduction burning your hand on a stove
a material that thermal energy moves quickly through conductor
conductors most metals
conductors silver, copper, gold
a material that thermal energy moves slowly through insulators
insulator wood
glass insulator
the transfer of thermal energy by the movement of particles from one part of a material to another convection
convection boiling water
the transfer of thermal energy form one object to another through matter or space, by electromagnetic waves radiation
radiation the sun heating the earth
heat transfer from direct contact conduction
heat transfer due to movement convection
heat transfer from indirect contact radiation
