Heat and Heat Transfer
Broad Concept: Heat is energy that is transferred between bodies that are at different temperatures by the processes of convection, conduction, and/or radiation.
|3.1 ||Relate thermal energy to molecular motion.*|
|3.2 ||Differentiate between specific heat and heat capacity.|
|3.3 ||Explain the relationship among temperature change in a substance for a given amount of heat transferred, the amount (mass) of the substance, and the specific heat of the substance.|
|3.4 ||Recognize that matter exists in four phases, and explain what happens during a phase change.|
