Physical Science Ch. 16
this flows spontaneously from hot objects to cold objects
any device that converts heat into work
a heat pump does work on this so you can keep your veggies cold
the Kelvin scale is used to measure this
a device used to determine the specific heat of a material
the transfer of thermal energy when particles of a fluid move from place to place
the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of a material by one degree Celsius
the transfer of thermal energy with no overall transfer of matter
the total potential and kinetic energy of all particles in an object
the transfer of energy by waves moving through space
according to the first law of thermodynamics, this is conserved
a material that conducts thermal energy poorly
