In heat, energy transfer from particle within certain materials, or from one material to another when the two are in direct contact.
material through which heat can be transferred
a means of heat transfer by movement of the heated substance itself, such as by currents in a fluid
The warming effect whose cause is that short-wavelength radiant energy from the sun can enter the atmosphere and be absorbed by the earth more easily than long wavelength energy rom the earth can leave.
A material that is a poor conductor of heat and that delays the transfer of heat.
Newton's law of cooling
The rate of cooling of an object is approximately proportional to the temperature difference ∆T between the object and it's surroundings. (rate of cooling ~ ∆T)
Any energy, including heat, light, and X rays, that is transmitted by radiation. It occurs in the form of electromagnetic waves.
Energy transmitted by electromagnetic waves.
Radiant energy emitted from the earth.
