  2. A: A means of heat transfer by movement of the heated substance itself, such as by currents in a fluid. 100

  3. Q: What is Convection?

  4. A: A material that is a poor conductor of heat and that delays the transfer of heat. 200

  5. Q: What is an insulator?

  6. A: The transmission of energy by electromagnetic waves.

  7. Q: What is radiation?

  8. A: A material through which heat can flow, usually a metal.

  9. Q: What is a conductor?

  10. A: A means of heat transfer within certain materials and from one material to another when the two are in direct contact.

  11. Q: What is conduction?

  12. A: This is the longest wave that can be seen, and it is around 500 degrees Celsius.

  13. Q: What is red light?

  14. A: At 1200 degrees Celsius, radiation gives off yellowish light, better known as this.

  15. Q: What is “white hot”?

  16. A: Radio waves, ultraviolet radiation, X rays, and gamma rays are examples of these.

  17. Q: What are electromagnetic waves?

  18. A: Good absorbers are good emitters; poor absorbers are poor emitters, as stated in this.

  19. Q: What is the emission of radiant energy?

  20. A: Reflection opposes this process.

  21. Q: What is absorption?

  22. A: Convection is an application of this principle, for all buoyed upward by denser surrounding fluid.

  23. Q: What is Archimedes’ principle?

  24. A: As air over the shore rises, cooler air from above the water takes its place (creating this.)

  25. Q: What is a sea breeze?

  26. A: Convection currents stirring in the atmosphere.

  27. Q: What are winds?

  28. Q: If you blow on your hand, with your mouth open, your breath is warm. But if you pucker your lips, your breath is cooler. Why?

  29. A: Expanding air cools.

  30. Q: Putting your fingers beside a flame is much safer than over top of it. Why?

  31. A: Heat travels upward by air convection. Little air travels sideways.

  32. A: Of the metals, silver then copper are top of the list of these.

  33. Q: What are conductors?

  34. A: Simply put: collisions between atoms or molecules and the actions of loosely bound electrons.

  35. Q: What is conduction?

  36. A: Wood, wool, straw, paper, and cork are poor conductors, but are top ______.

  37. Q: What are insulators?

  38. Q: A blanket does not truly give off heat. It slows the transfer of ______ ________ to your surroundings.

  39. A: What is body heat?

  40. Q: Why would snow last longer on a well-insulated roof?

  41. A: Little heat escapes from the house, keeping heat unable to escape and melt snow.

  42. A: Radiation energy emitted from the earth after being absorbed from the sun.

  43. Q: What is terrestrial radiation?

  44. A: Rate of cooling ~ Δ t

  45. Q: What is Newton’s law of cooling?

  46. A: The warming effect whose cause is that short-wavelength radiant energy from the sun can enter the atmosphere and be absorbed by the earth more easily than long-wavelength energy from the earth can leave.

  47. Q: What is the greenhouse effect?

  48. Q: Our present environmental concern is that excess carbon dioxide and other atmospheric gases will trap too much energy, causing this.

  49. A: What is global warming?

  50. Q: The radiant energy from the sun is composed of short waves and lets off three waves. What three waves?
