  • Q1
    Energy in the form of heat.
    Thermal Energy
    30s
  • Q2
    The four laws that define the basic properties and behavior of energy.
    Laws of Thermodynamics
    30s
  • Q3
    The branch of physics that deals with the relationships between heat and other forms of energy.
    Thermodynamics
    30s
  • Q4
    When two objects are not in thermal equilibrium, heat (energy) flows from the object which is hotter to the object that is colder.
    Zeroth Law (of Thermodynamics)
    30s
  • Q5
    The state of two or more things having the same temperature.
    Thermal Equilibrium
    30s
  • Q6
    Energy (& matter) can be transferred and transformed, but it cannot be created or destroyed. Also called the law of conservation of energy (& matter).
    First Law of Thermodynamics
    30s
  • Q7
    Every energy transfer or transformation increases the entropy of the universe. Also called the law of entropy.
    Second Law of Thermodynamics
    30s
  • Q8
    A measure of disorder or randomness.
    Entropy
    Energy
    Enthalpy
    30s
  • Q9
    When the temperature of an object reaches absolute zero, the atoms in the object will stop moving.
    Third Law of Thermodynamics
    30s
  • Q10
    A form of energy associated with the movement of atoms. The faster the atoms are moving, the greater the energy/temperature of the object.
    Heat
    30s
  • Q11
    An object from which heat is radiating (leaving).
    Heat Source
    30s
  • Q12
    Energy that is moving from one place to another.
    Radiation
    30s
  • Q13
    Heat energy that is transmitted as electromagnetic waves & therefore can move through empty space.
    Radiant Heat
    30s
  • Q14
    A way in which heat is transferred through the movement of atoms in a fluid (gas or liquid).
    Convection
    30s
  • Q15
    The flow of cooler air from over an ocean or lake toward land.
    Sea Breeze
    30s
