Teacher's Notes Subject: Physics (Heat Energy) Topic: Conservation of energy- Heat transfer Grades: 8 Prior Knowledge: 1) phases of matter- solid, liquid, gas, plasma 2) phase changes- solid to liquid, liquid to gas, solid to gas, liquid to solid, gas to liquid 3) molecules, elements, metals, nonmetal 4) density- molecule spacing of solid liquid and gas 5) buoyancy
Lesson Objectives By the end of this lesson student’s should be able to explain how heat and temperature are due to molecular motion and how energy is transferred define and explain the three types of heat transfer compare conductors and insulators
Lesson Notes Motion can produce heat. The amount of heat produced depends on the amount of motion. A molecule at any temperature is the same size. M atter is made of atoms and molecules, which are always in motion. The speed of the molecules depends on how much energy they have, which affects the state of matter they are in – solid, liquid, gas or plasma. The less energy the particles have the less they move and the more solid and colder the matter is. The more energy the particles have the more they move so the more liquid or gaseous and hotter the matter is. H eat is a form of energy caused by the friction between molecules due to the internal motions of molecules. Heat transfer is heat energy moving from a warmer object to a cooler object. T here are three types of heat transfer: 1) Conduction is heat transferred by the direct contact of molecules. 2) Convection is heat transferred through a liquid or gas by means of up-and-down movements called convection currents. 3) Radiation is heat transferred through empty space by invisible infrared rays.
Where does heat come from? Touch each image and discuss. Motion causes friction which produces heat. The amount of heat produced depends on the amount of motion and friction.
How can motion create heat? Touch each image to view the different energy levels of the molecule. Water is made of molecules. Molecules are always in motion. The more molecular motion and friction the more heat. The energy level of the molecules determines their state of matter.
What is heat? Touch each image to see how the water molecules react. Heat is a form of energy caused by the internal motion of molecules and friction as the molecules rub against each other. The hotter a substance is, the faster the molecules are moving.
What is heat transfer? Drag the hand over the ice or pan, observe the heat transfer for each. Heat transfer is when heat energy moves from a warmer object to a cooler object.
heat transferred through empty space by invisible infrared rays. heat transferred through a liquid or gas by means of up-and-down caused by differences in temperature and density. heat transferred by the direct contact of molecules. What are the three type of heat transfer? Drag the terms to the correct definitions. Conduction Convection Radiation
Correct Answer heat transferred through empty space by invisible infrared rays. heat transferred through a liquid or gas by means of up-and-down. heat transferred by the direct contact of molecules. Conduction Convection Radiation
Conduction Touch the image. Conduction is the transfer of energy through matter by direct contact of particles.
Do some substances conduct heat more rapidly than others? Write your answers and touch the clouds to reveal some examples. Can you think of objects that are used to conduct heat or energy? Copper wire conducts energy. Metal pots and pans conduct heat to cook food.
Do some substances conduct heat and energy poorly? Write your answers and touch the clouds to reveal some examples. Can you think of objects that are used to stop the conduction of heat or energy? A winter coat stops energy from being conducted out of a body. A hot pad stops conduction from a hot pan to the hand. Insulators are substances that do not conduct heat and energy well. Cloth, wood, glass, plastic, and rubber conduct energy and heat very slowly when in contact with vigorously moving particles of a hot object.
Conduction Lab Drag the objects to connect the battery to the light bulb. Find out which items conduct energy.
Convection Click on the red molecule to view the 4 stages of convection. Convection is heat that is transferred in liquids or gases by means of up and down movements of matter. The hot molecules move up and the cold molecules move down. Cycles are created called convection currents.
Radiation Touch each image to see examples of heat radiation. Radiation is the heat energy that is transferred through empty space by invisible infrared radiation.
