absolute zero is the lowest temperature possible
heat is the transfer of thermal energy from a warmer object to a cooler object
fahrenheit scale to measure temperature used by the United States
kelvin scale celsius and fahrenheit scales divided into degrees
Convection the type of heat transfer that occurs only in fluids
convection current convection rents in air cause wind and weather changes
radiation is the transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves
conduction transfers heat from one particle of matter to another within an object or between two objects
conductor a material that conducts heat well
insulator materials that do not conduct heat well
specific heat the amount of energy required ti raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of a material by 1 kelvin
thermal expansion the expanding of matter when it is heated
