**Temperature is a measure of…**• The total amount of energy in an object • The total amount of thermal energy in an object • How much heat something gives off • How fast the molecules in an object are moving**Heat is…**• Energy given off or absorbed by an object • A measure of the motion of the molecules in an object • The total amount of molecular energy in an object**How do we measure temperature?**Think about using a thermometer**The molecules of the substance bump into the thermometer and**transfer energy. How often and how hard they bump into the thermometer are directly related to their speed.**Temperature turns out to be related to the average speed of**the molecules in a substance.**Temperature is not a measure of the total amount of energy**in an object. • Thermal Energy = internal energy = a measure of the total kinetic and potential energy in an object**Temperature Converter**• http://www.onlineconversion.com/temperature.htm**Since there is a minimum kinetic energy for particles(0 J),**there is a lowest possible temperature-absolute zero.**Temperature and heat**• When you add heat energy to an object its temperature may or may not increase. • Since heat is energy it can be measured in joules.**1 calorie is the amount of heat needed to raise the**temperature of water by one degree. • The amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a substance by 1o C is called specific heat capacity or specific heat.**Calculating Heat energy**• H=mcΔt • Where • H = heat energy added or removed • .m=mass • C = specific heat • Δt = change in temperature**Ways of using heat**• Forced air system-**Solar heating**• There is a passive solar heat-receive sunlight during day and are stored. • Active solar heating-receives solar energy from panels on south side**Thermodynamics**• First law of thermodynamics- • Second law of thermodynamics
