Chapter 13

Heat & Temperature

Temperature Measure of the average KINETIC ENERGY of the particles that make up an object... Measure of how hot or cold something is
Absolute Zero Temperature at which all molecular motion stops
Heat Energy transferred between objects that are at different temperatures (ALWAYS from high to low temperature)
Thermal Conduction Transfer of energy as heat through a material
Convection Movement of matter due to differences in density that are caused by temperature variations
Convection Current VERTICAL movement of air currents due to temperature variations... Hot air rises above cool air
Radiation Energy that is transferred as electromagnetic waves
Conductor Material through which energy can EASILY be transferred as heat
Insulator Material that is a POOR conductor through which energy can NOT be easily transferred
