Terms in this set (21)
the measure of thermal energy (how hot or cold something is)
An instrument used to measure temperature
A material that DOES NOT let heat travel through it easily and slows the transfer of heat or thermal energy. For example, wool, plastic, and cotton.
The movement or transfer of heat by DIRECT CONTACT between particles of matter
The amount of thermal energy in an item. Thermal energy makes things warmer.
thermal (heat) energy
The energy of movement of tiny particles of matter.
The movement of heat. Heat moves from a warmer object to a colder object. Three types of heat transfer include convection, conduction, and radiation.
To change from a gas to a liquid. This occurs when water vapors are cooled.
A material that heat travels through easily. For example, metals like copper and steel.
The transfer of heat through gases and liquids by movement of these particles.
To change from a solid to a liquid. This occurs when ice is heated.
To change to a solid. This occurs when water is cooled to a temperature below 0 degrees Celsius or 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
To change from a liquid to a gas. This occurs when water is boiled.
Anything that takes up space and has mass. It can come in the form of a solid, liquid, or gas.
The movement or transfer of heat in the form of electromagnet waves.
Force that works against the movement of two objects that are in contact with each other. This movement can create heat.
A metric unit of measure used to indicate temperature.
A customary unit of measure used to indicate temperature.
The ability to do work.
An object or action that produces thermal (heat) energy.
The energy giving off by the sun.
