How is Heat Transferred? Heat travels through conduction, convection and radiation.
How Heat Changes Matter? Phase changes happen when certain points are reached: freezing point, boiling point and melting point.
Heat Makes a Difference • Particles in a solid move very little. • Particles in a liquid move and flow. • Particles in a gas move around quickly.
Measuring and Preserving Heat Energy We often use the Fahrenheit scale to measure temperature.
What is insulation? Insulation is a barrier that minimizes the transfer of heat energy from one material to another by reducing the conduction, convection and/or radiation effects.
Greenhouse Effect The Greenhouse Effect is the rise in temperature in the Earth’s atmosphere due to the greenhouse gases trapping energy from the sun.
