Lesson 440, Heat

Defining temperature, thermal equilibrium, heat

Distinguishing between temperature and heat

Defining calorie, specific heat, absolute zero

Identifying the effects of an increase and a decrease in temperature on a substance

Describing conduction, convection, and radiation and how each spreads heat

Understanding Thermodynamics and the three laws which govern it

Knowing heat energy consists of ordered and disordered motions of colliding particles

Understanding that temperature is a measure of the average translational kinetic energy of motion of the molecules of an object

Understanding that the total amount of usable energy always decreases, even though the total amount of energy is conserved in any transfer
