Is heat and temperature the same thing?
No
1 of 14
Can we measure temperature with a thermometer?
Yes
2 of 14
What does temperature describe?
How hot something is
3 of 14
The amount of heat depends on
It's temperature, it's material, it's mass
4 of 14
Does heat always move from a hot object to a cold?
Yes until they both become the same temperature.
5 of 14
Is a poor thermal conductor called an insulator?
Yes
6 of 14
Are metals good conductors of heat?
Yes
7 of 14
When a solid is heated does it gain energy?
Yes
8 of 14
Does The extra vibrations in a solid cause the particles to move around
Yes- so the solid expands (gets bigger)
9 of 14
When the heated solid cools down does it get smaller?
Yes (contracts)
10 of 14
When a solid expands it has the same mass but does its density increase?
No it actually decreases
11 of 14
Are liquids and gases all fluids?
Yes
12 of 14
Heat travel in a solid is called conduction?
True
13 of 14
When a fluid is heated its particles move around faster. Causing the fluid to become less dense. Why
The fluid takes up the same amount of space but is the same mass
