temperature measure of how hot or cold something is
Thermal energy energy that comes from heat
Heat high temperature/quality of being hot

convection transfer of thermal energy by MOVEMENT of particles without particles
radiation transfer of thermal energy by WAVES without particles
conductor material allowing thermal energy to be transferred easily
insulator material NOT allowing thermal energy to be transferred easily
3 good conductors copper, aluminum,silver
3 good insulators wood,glass,fiberglass
Matter of fluids liquid and gas
Material absorbed more to RE dull or dark colored materials
RE hitting shiny object reflects
RE hitting dull object absorbs
3 radiant energy objects microwave, x-ray, light
hot water will___because it has a __density rise/lower
cold water will ___because it has __density sink/higher
handle of pot conduction
boiling water/bubbles rising convection
Heat rising up to the pot radiation
depends on Kinetic and potential energy Thermal energy
