Presentation Transcript
1. What is Heat? This is the movement of thermal energy from a substance at a higher temperature to another at a lower temperature.

2. Heat vs. Temperature Heat is the actual energy… Temperature is the measure of average kinetic energy of particles in a substance.

3. Heat is NOT Temperature

4. Heat Transfer • Heat always moves from a warmer place to a cooler place. • Hot objects in a cooler room will cool to room temperature. • Cold objects in a warmer room will heat up to room temperature.

5. Heat Transfer Methods • Heat transfers in three ways: • Conduction • Convection • Radiation

6. Conduction Conduction heat transfer is the flowing of heat energy from a high-temperature object to a lower-temperature object.

7. When you heat a metal strip at one end, the heat travels to the other end. Conduction As you heat the metal, the particles vibrate, these vibrations make the adjacent particles vibrate, and so on and so on, the vibrations are passed along the metal and so is the heat. We call this? Conduction

8. Metals are different The outer e______ of metal atoms drift, and are free to move. lectrons When the metal is heated, this ‘sea of electrons’ gain k_____ energy and transfer it throughout the metal. inetic Insulators, such as w___ and p____, do not have this ‘sea of electrons’ which is why they do not conduct heat as well as metals. ood lastic

9. Why does metal feel colder than wood, if they are both at the same temperature? Metal is a conductor, wood is an insulator. Metal conducts the heat away from your hands. Wood does not conduct the heat away from your hands as well as the metal, so the wood feels warmer than the metal.

10. Convection Convection takes place when heated molecules move from one place to another, taking the heat with them. Convection is common in both the atmosphere, as well as in the oceans. Convection is the primary way that heat moves through gases and liquids.

11. Convection

12. What happens to the particles in a liquid or a gas when you heat them? Convection The particles spread out and become less dense.

13. Water movement Cools at the surface Convection current Hot water rises Cooler water sinks

14. Cold air sinks Where is the freezer compartment put in a fridge? Freezer compartment It is warmer at the bottom, so this warmer air rises and a convection current is set up. It is put at the top, because cool air sinks, so it cools the food on the way down.

16. The third method of heat transfer How does heat energy get from the Sun to the Earth? There are no particles between the Sun and the Earth so it CANNOT travel by conduction or by convection. RADIATION ?

18. Radiation • The transfer of energy by electromagnetic waves. Examples: • Sun • Fire • Light bulb

19. Radiation question Why are houses painted white in hot countries? White reflects heat radiation and keeps the house cooler.
