Heat transfer is the exchange of thermal energy between physical systems,
depending on the temperature and pressure, by dissipating heat. The
fundamental ... More »
Heat Transfer. The transfer of heat is normally from a high temperature object to a
lower temperature object. Heat transfer changes the internal energy of both ...
What is Heat? All matter is made up of molecules and atoms. These atoms are
always in different types of motion (translation, rotational, vibrational). The motion
An understanding of heat transfer
is crucial to analyzing a thermodynamic process, such as those that take place in heat
engines and heat
energy is the form of energy which transfers
this energy from one body or system to another. If you leave your oven o... More »
It is the temperature difference between the two neighboring objects that causes
this heat transfer. The heat transfer continues until the two objects have reached
A secondary school revision resource for AQA GCSE Science about energy,
electricity, heat transfer and efficiency.
How heat energy can be transferred from one place to another by conduction,
convection and radiation.
Need help with your Science homework? In this animated activity, learners
explore three major methods of heat transfer and practice identifying each.
I. Modes of heat transfer. Conduction: Heat can be conducted between two
bodies which are in contact with each other; heat "flows" from one to the other.
