Which of the following is not a true statement about heat transfer?

  1. Whenever the temperature of something changes, a transfer of heat has occurred.

  • Conduction is the transfer of heat by infrared rays.
  • Light bulbs are examples of heat transfer by radiation.
  • Convection occurs when a hot object moves to an area with less heat.
  • Expert Solution
    To determine

    The incorrect statement about heat transfer.

    Explanation of Solution

    Whenever there is a difference in temperature between two substances, heat is transferred from the substance at a higher temperature to the substance at a lower temperature. This transfer of heat takes place by three modes which are discussed below.

    Conduction:

    It is the transfer of heat from a substance at a higher temperature to a substance at a lower temperature when the bodies are at direct or physical contact.

    It is given by Fourier law: Q=KAdtdx.

    Where, Q refers to the heat flow, K is the thermal conductivity of the substance or body, A is the surface area of heat flow, dt refers to the change in temperature or temperature difference, dx refers to the thickness of the substance in the heat flow direction.

    Convection:

    It is the transfer of heat from one body to another by the movement of the molecules
