Heat, Temperature, and Kinetic Theory Essay

… This helps to make the similarities and interactions between temperature and heat more clear, however they are still two very distinct and very different concepts. Put most simply, heat refers to the thermal energy stored by a mass in the form of the kinetic energy of the mass's particles, while temperature refers to a measurement of this energy taken as an average for each individual particle, such that the size of the mass affects the overall energy level (heat) but not the measurement of the average energy (temperature).

A variety of different factors affect the capacity that different substances and specific chunks of matter have for holding heat. The initial movement (i.e. kinetic energy) of the molecules in a substance are one factor, with greater…. [read more]

Heat and Temperature Essay

… These variations occur mostly in coastal regions. In these regions, there is unequal heating of the land as well the adjacent sea regions. This leads to the creation of land and sea breezes. Land breeze (offshore winds) occurs at night while the sea breeze (onshore winds) occurs during the day (Convection, 2013). During the day, the land becomes heated more than the sea. This makes the air on the land to become less dense hence rising. These forces the air above the sea to occupy the space created. This happens through convection creating onshore winds or sea breeze (Convection, 2013). At night, the sea is more is usually warmer than the land. As a result, the air above it becomes heated and rise as its…. [read more]

Heat How Does the Study Essay

… It is important to note that temperature is not the kinetic energy since temperature is not energy. But just a number that relates to the amount of energy possessed by molecules in a substance (, 2009).

What is the relationship between heat and temperature?

There are two major relationships that exist between heat and temperature. One significant one is that when heat energy goes into a substance, then that substance is bound to experience and increase in temperature. The added heat is realized as an increased kinetic energy in the molecules of the matter.

The second significant relationship is that when heat energy goes into an object, there is a likelihood of change in the state of the matter. For the solid lie ice, the…. [read more]

Heat How Does the Study Essay

… Both heat and temperature are governed by the rules of thermodynamics and work together in ensuring there is a smooth flow of energy from the hotter regions to the relatively colder areas.

How are they different?

The difference between heat and temperature is that temperature is a measurement of the vibration of the molecules, yet heat on the other hand is the amount of energy. Heat is measured in joules while on the other hand temperature is measured in degrees F, degrees C. And degrees K. One other difference is that heat energy can be carried without necessarily changing the temperature of the object. One instance of this is the ice water that remains at freezing point even as energy is added to the ice…. [read more]

Heat Capacity Research Paper

… Heat capacity, C of any given system is also noted to be the ratio of the heat that can either be added or effectively withdrawn from the given system in order to give rise to the resultant temperature.

C = ?Q/?T = dQ/dT [J/deg]

This type of definition is however noted to be valid in the absence of any form of phase transitions.

Heat Capacity is noted as the measure of a material's ability to absorb a given amount of thermal energy.

Thermal energy = the kinetic energy of the atomic motions +The potential energy of distortion of the interatomic bonds.

The higher the value of T, the larger the mean atomic velocity and corresponding the amplitude of the atomic vibrations. The outcome is the…. [read more]

Heat and Temperature Essay

… Heat and Temperature

The Kinetic Theory of Matters is mainly focused on the facts that everything is composed out of moving particles and this movement is accelerated if temperature is increased. Heat is transferred through atoms or molecules moving and thus transmitting energy. A body's temperature can be found by measuring the average kinetic energy of the particles that it contains.

Heat can be transferred through three processes: conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction is the process during which heat is transferred through a solid body that is heated. During the process of convection, particles that are heated transmit heat to another body. Radiation is different from conduction and convection because it can transmit heat through open space, given that it does not require contact between…. [read more]

Heat Loss Research Paper

… Mechanisms of Heat Loss

Heat Loss

How the Rate of Heat Loss is affected by Surrounding Temperatures

Heat transfer occurs whenever there is a temperature differential between a substance and its environment. This differential can be highly significant, or it can be mild and nearly undetectable. The issue is not the strength of the differential, but whether it exists at all. If the substance is at a higher temperature than its surroundings it will lose heat, and if at a lower temperature, it will gain heat. The significance of the differential will affect how quickly the substance gains or loses heat, and can also affect how much heat is lost overall - whether that heat is lost rapidly or whether it dissipates more slowly over….

Heat Deaths and Illnesses Post Katrina Reforms Research Paper

… Heat Deaths and Illnesses/Post-Katrina Reforms

Heat related deaths are completely preventable. All a person needs to avoid dying from the heat is to remain at a temperature where that person can function normally and not be injured by the weather. However, even with that common knowledge there are many people who die every year of the heat (Harmon, 2010). Some of these deaths take place because there are people who do not listen to weather forecasts and take them seriously. They go out in the heat and run or jog or work, and they fail to take proper precautions. Sometimes, heat related deaths occur because people do not have enough money to have air conditioning and fans. They keep their doors and windows closed even…. [read more]

Physical Science: Heat Essay

… How much mass it possesses;

2. What is in the mass; and,

3. Its physical state (Cavendish, 2003).

For example, according to Cavendish, "The heat capacity of a body depends upon its mass (the amount of matter present) as well as its compositional and physical state. Hence, a cold body that has a greater heat capacity may hold more heat than a hot body that has a lower heat capacity" (2003, p. 2414).

What are the various sources of heat?

Far and away, the main source of heat for earthlings at least is the Sun, but chemical and other nuclear reactions can also produce heat (Cavendish, 2003), as well as physical friction and high pressure which also produce heat (Thewlis, Glass & Hughes, 1992).

How does the study of heat relate to the kinetic theory of matter?

Heat transfer is a course by which internal energy from one matter transfers to another matter. Thermodynamics is the study of heat transfer and the alterations that come from it. Under the kinetic theory, the internal energy of a material is created from the movement of individual atoms or molecules. Heat energy is the type of energy which transmits this energy from one body or system to another. This heat transfer can happen in a variety of ways:

Conduction takes place when heat flows through a heated solid.

Convection is when heated particles transfer heat to another substance, such as cooking something in boiling water.

Radiation is when heat is…. [read more]

For example, due to the increased costs of electricity in the summer because of the greater need for air conditioning in consumer's homes, as well as retail establishments, and the cost of heating homes and businesses during the winter, consumers will have less disposable income to spend on other goods and services and thus may spend less. Businesses will have more expenses, namely to keep their retail spaces hot or cool and thus may be hard hit economically by temperature fluctuations. Other businesses, such as air conditioning or heating services, may benefit from extreme conditions. Stores such as Home Depot…. [read more]

Temperature and Heat Term Paper

… Temperature and Heat

Heat affects the temperature of the human body, water, land, atmosphere, and other structures of the earth. This is because the universe is made up of matter and energy. Matter is made up of atoms and group of atoms or molecules. It is energy that causes the atoms and molecules to move. This movement of atoms and molecules creates the form of energy. Based on scientific studies, temperature and heat are correlated to each other. Whenever heat is mentioned, temperature will follow, and vice versa. However, there is a slight difference between heat and temperature.

Nature of Heat Essay

… The proportional relationship between heat and temperature can be explained by the way heat is related to the kinetic energy of molecules. Within all known substances, molecules are in motion. While the molecules are all traveling at different speeds, the average motion of all molecules in a body is known as the average kinetic energy of the body (Ibid). If energy is added to a system or body, the motion of the molecules increases and the average kinetic energy of the system increases. The amount of heat in a system is the amount of transferable energy, or "work," available in a system. This transferable energy is related to the motion of the molecules in that the motion of the molecules transfers energy among the molecules…. [read more]

Temperature regulation: A function of the brain and the body

As warm-blooded animals, humans and other mammals and birds have a great advantage in temperature regulation. Unlike cold-blooded animals such as reptiles, insects, and amphibians, humans are capable of moving quite quickly in very cold temperatures. The human body is not dependant upon the environment to maintain a core temperature so the body's muscles can function effectively. 2/3 of human's total energy expenditure involves maintaining body temperature. We need more fuel as a species than a frog, but we are also capable of moving faster during cold weather to obtain higher-quality sources of protein and satisfy the needs of our many…. [read more]

Thermo Therapy Application of Healing Term Paper

… The conversion of energy from one energy form (light, sound) to another (heat) is the conversion form of heating, which involves heat transfer. Radian light bakers or heat lamps make superficial heat, where the heat is transmitted when the transmission medium (light energy) is changed to heat energy at the skin surface. Generally, conductive heating is an easy modality and the patient can be trained for individual home use. The drawbacks of this modality are difficulty in applying to areas showing irregularity (foot), likely burns and the skin-drying effect (excepting paraffin or water media). An additional drawback that may happen is the injury of local vascular supply, due to a mixture of the weight of the modality on the limb or the weight of the…. [read more]

Maintaining an Optimal Temperature in the Workplace Term Paper

… Risk Management: Thermal Comfort

Because our homes and businesses exist in a continually temperature-controlled state, it is easy to forget the risks posed by improper temperature management. Risks may be posed to employees if internal heating and cooling systems break down, if there is a power outage or simply if on a consistent basis there are not adequate steps taken to control the temperature. Also, temperature risks may be posed due to the nature of the work, either indoors (such as a factory setting) or outdoors during extreme conditions. Hazards posed by improper thermal regulation thus may be consistent and an innate part of the work or they may be posed when temperature regulation systems break down.
