GHMS-Heat Transfer Ch 6, Sec 1&2
a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object
a temperature scale that defines the freezing point of water as 32 degrees and the boiling point of water a 212 degrees
a temperature scale that defines the freezing point of water as 0 degrees and the boiling point of water as 100 degrees
the temperature scale on which zero is the temperature at which no more energy can be removed from matter
the temperature at which no more energy can be removed from matter
thermal energy that is transferred from matter at a higher temperature to matter at a lower temperature
States of Matter
The three states that most matter exists in on Earth are solids, liquids, and gases.
The transfer of heat from one particle of matter to another
the transfer of heatby the movement of currents within a fluid (liquid or gas)
a current caused by the rising of heated fluid and sinking of cooled fluid
the transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves
A material that conducts heat well
a material that does not conduct heat well
The temperature at which a solid changes to a liquid
The SI unit of heat
