Thermal Energy 6th
Define Heat Energy
Energy that is transferred between objects of different temperatures.
The measure of the amount of kinetic energy of molecules in a substance
Define Thermal Equilibrium
a state in which all parts of a system are at the same temperature
Heat is able to transfer through a material; heat is transferred when 2 or more objects are in contact or from molecule to molecule
Heat energy is transferred through fluids due to unequal heating
Heat energy that moves through empty space in the form of waves
A material that allows heat to flow through it well
A material that does not allow heat to flow through it easily; tends to "trap" heat
Define Kinetic energy
the energy of motion
If a glass of ice water is left overnight, what will its temperature be the next day?
Heat energy always flows in which direction?
from higher temperatures to lower temperatures
