the temperature at which particles stop moving entirely (impossible to actually reach)
Boiling point of water in °C
Boiling point of water in °F
Boiling point of water in K
the direct transfer of heat from one solid to another solid that it is touching
the transfer of heat by the circulation or movement of a liquid or gas; heats evenly because of the fact that fluids can flow
oven, blood (circulating), furnace
converting Celsius to Kelvin
C + 273 = K
converting Fahrenheit to Kelvin
must convert to Celsius first, THEN to Kelvin
example of high specific heat
example of low specific heat
the TOTAL kinetic energy of an object's particles due to non-directional motion at the atomic level
always goes from hot to cold
high specific heat
difficult to change the temperature
low specific heat
easy to change the temperature
Melting point of water in °C
Melting point of water in °F
Melting point of water in K
the transfer of heat by rays or waves
sun, heat lamp, microwave
How hard it is to change the temperature of something.
the AVERAGE kinetic energy of an object's particles due to non-directional motion at the atomic level
Which temperature scale can be used for calculations in science?
Why do we have the Kelvin scale?
1) Absolute zero is zero
2) There are no negative temperatures
