Chapter 16: Temperature and Heat

Heat Thermal energy that flows from something of high temp. to something of low temp. Warm  Cold Metric unit  Joules Transfer of Thermal Energy.

Temperature Related to the kinetic energy in an object. The faster the particles move the higher the temperature. Measure of how hot or cold an object is compared to a reference point.

Temperature The reference point on the Kelvin scale for temperature is absolute zero. Absolute zero – a temperature of 0°K.

Thermal Energy Total Potential and Kinetic Energy of an object. Depends on an objects mass, temperature, and phase.

Thermal Energy vs. Temperature Thermal energy is greater with an object with a greater mass. Temperature is greater with an object whose particles are moving faster. Coffee vs. Lemonade (475)

Thermal Expansion Increase in an object’s volume because of an increase in temp. It occurs because particles tend to move farther apart as temp. increases. Example: Balloon Gas expands more than liquids and solids

Specific Heat Heat needed to raise the temp. of a 1g of an object 1 o Celcius. Unique to every material The lower an object’s specific heat, the more the temp. increases when heat is absorbed.

Water has a large specific heat. Needs a lot of heat to change its temp

Heat is measured in Joules or calories. One calorie is the energy the required to raise the temp. of 1g of water by 1  C. One calorie is equal to 1.184 J The unit for specific heat is J/g  C

Q = m c ΔT Heat massspecific change heat in temp.

Measuring Heat Changes A calorimeter is an instrument used to measure changes in thermal energy. It uses the principle that heat flows from hotter to colder objects until both reach the same temperature.

Transfer of heat through direct contact. Conduction in gases is slower than in liquids and solids. Conduction or

Thermal Conductors Material that conducts thermal energy well. Examples: copper & aluminum pots & pans; wood vs. tile flooring

Thermal Insulators Material that conducts thermal energy poorly. Examples: air in a double pane window, wood, fiberglass, fat

Convection Transfer of heat through moving particles in fluids (liquids & gases). Convection Current occurs when a fluid circulates in a loop as it heats and cools. Example: oven

Transfer of heat by electromagnetic waves Radiation Examples: Heat from the sun, heat lamps used in restaurants light colored object  Reflect heat dark colored object  Absorb heat

Thermodynamics The study of conversions between thermal energy and other forms of energy. 3 Laws of Thermodynamics

1 st Law of Thermodynamics “Energy is conserved.” Energy is never created or destroyed, and throughout a conversion all of the energy can be accounted for.

2 nd Law of Thermodynamics “Thermal energy can flow from colder objects to hotter objects only if work is done.”

A heat engine is any device that converts heat into work. Thermal energy that is not converted into work is called waste heat. Waste heat is lost to the environment.

3 rd Law of Thermodynamics “Absolute zero cannot be reached.” Scientist have cooled matter almost to 0K, but have not been able to cool it completely.

From his observations of cannon drilling, Count Rumford concluded that heat could NOT be a form of MATTER
