In everyday life, we regularly come across the terms such as heat, temperature, cool, etc. But what do those terms actually mean? So in this essay, we are going to learn the real meanings of those terms and how the heat is transferred from a place to place, and understand the real context of those terms in everyday life.
Everyone has felt heat, but what is it? The simple answer is that heat is energy. In physics heat is identified as a source of energy and can be observed only when it is transferring from a one place to another. All matter in the universe, is made up of molecules and atoms. These atoms are always in different types of motion and this motion of atoms and molecules creates heat or thermal energy. All matter has this thermal energy. The more motion the atoms or molecules have the more heat or thermal energy they will have.
Heat always tends to travel from a place to place whenever there is a suitable physical pathway exists between the source object and the destination object. In addition, it will always be travelling from a hotter object to cooler object. Heat travels in waves like other forms of energy, and can change the matter it touches. It can heat matter up by the molecules the move or it can cause chemical reactions like burning to occur. The path will be either direct or indirect depending on the mode of transfer of heat. Heat can travel from one place to another in three ways:
• Conduction
• Convection
• Radiation
Both conduction and
