What is the form of heat transfer which occurs through direct contact?
What type of heat transfer is observed in a microwave?
What is the value of a perfect emitter?
Is heat the same as temperature?
What are wood, ice, and air good examples of?
What is the transmission of energy across space?
What is the form to move heat by mixing hot and cold materials?
Mostly this happens in liquids and gases, where flow and the consequent mixing of material is easy.
What do the amount and nature of the radiation each object emit primarily depend on?
What means of heat transfer is thought to be the driving mechanism of plate tectonics??
What type of material has a high level of thermal conductivity?
Examples are copper, gold, and aluminum.
What is a measure of how good a radiator a surface is?
This depends on both the material the object is made of and the conduction of its surface. The emissivity takes on values from zero to one only.
What is the process which uses gravity to mix the hot and cold material without intervention?
Does radiation go both ways?
What is the measure of how hot something is?
What is the energy transferred from something of higher temperature to lower temperature called?
How does heat from the Sun reach the Earth?
What does statistical physics suggest about the movement of heat? Does it move inward or outward from where it is localized?
What means of heat transfer does not require a medium?
Unlike conduction and convection, matter or medium is not needed for radiant energy to flow.
What material can convection not occur in?
Convection needs particles to be free to move around.
Does heat flow from a cold object to a hot object?
Heat always flows from a hot object to a cold one.
