Energy transfer and heat transfer!!!! TEST DECEMBER 15!
Terms in this set (24)
Energy of movement.
Gravitational Potential Energy
The energy something has due to its height.
Elastic Potential Energy
The potential energy stored due to the deformation of an elastic object such as a spring or rubber band.
A change from one form of energy to another.
A measure of how hot or cold something is; a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object.
A scale of temperature on which water freezes at 32 and boils at 212 under standard conditions. (used in US)
A scale of temperature in which water freezes at 0 and boils at 100 under standard conditions. (used in rest of the world)
The capacity to do work.
Law Of Conservation Of Energy
States that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be changes from one form to another.
The energy transferred between objects that are at different temperatures.
unit used to express energy
A physical system that does not interact with other systems. A closed system obeys that conservation laws in its physical description.
Heat transfer through direct contract of molecules.
Heat transfer through empty space, in the form of electromagnetic waves.
heat transfer by movement of a fluid like air or liquid
Movement of heat by transfer of energy from one object to another
The about of work an object that are at different temperatures.
Produced by the vibrations of electrically charged particles thru electromagnetic waves. Can travel through matter or a vacuum.
Caused by an object's vibrations. A vibrating object transmits energy through waves in air around it.
Energy of a compound that changes as its atoms are rearranged. (reacts)
Kinetic energy of a substance's particles, more movement, more heat.
The energy of moving electrons.
Energy that comes from changes in the nucleus of an atom. (either splits atoms (fission) or fuses them (fusion))
