Heat energy
Temperature – measure of the average KE of the particles in a substance, measured in degrees Celsius or degrees Kelvin. Celsius 0⁰C (freezing point of water) to 100⁰C (boiling point of water) Kelvin 0 K (absolute zero, particles stop moving theoretically), equivalent to -273.15⁰C. Uses the same scale for increase, ie. a 1⁰C increase in temperature equates to a 1K increase in temperature.
Heat – amount of energy transferred, measured in Joules (J) Kinetic Energy,
Thermal Equilibrium
When you put HOT and COLD substance together they will move toward thermal equilibrium

Q(out) Q(on)

Q – Heat Energy, measured in Joules (J)
Specific heat capacity
Specific heat larger, heat faster.
Question: Do all objects increase their temperature at the same rate when heated?
NO, due to variation in molecular structure and bonds of different materials. (ie. when cooking a metal spoon gets hotter faster than a wooden spoon)
E.G. Sand get hotter than the same amount of water at the beach, this is because SAND only requires 880J of heat energy from the SUN to raise its temperature by 1⁰C, whereas WATER requires 4200J of heat energy.

Q – Heat Energy in Joules (J) m – mass in kg c – Specific Heat Energy (J/kg/K) or (J/kg/⁰C)
ΔT – change in temperature in K or ⁰C

Rearrange

Specific Heat Capacity, c, is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 kg of a substance by 1K or 1⁰C.

Latent Heat
When a substance is heated to the extent it change state, it undergoes a phase change.
The additional heat causes the molecules to vibrate faster, causing the temperature to increase.
At heating continues the molecules will reach a point where they break free of their molecular bonds.
Once a liquid has reached its ‘boiling point’ the added heat energy does not raise the temperature of the liquid, the energy goes in to breaking the molecular bonds.

    To answer this question, we must know what heat is. Heat is the total amount of the movement of particles in an object. Our the total amount of kinetic energy. Explanation: Imagine the particles in the hot water are moving, but there is not a lot of particles in that pot of water. Then imagine an iceberg that has a lot of particles that are moving at a much slower rate, but what’s more average speed moving particles or a massive amount of below average speed moving particles. Remember that we are…

    physics and chemistry, heat is energy transferred from one body to another by thermal interactions. The transfer of energy can occur in a variety of ways, among them conduction,radiation, and convection. The SI unit of heat is the joule. Heat can be measured by calorimeter, or determined indirectly by calculations based on other quantities, relying for instance on the first law of thermodynamics. In calorimeter, the concepts of latent heat and of sensible heat are used. Latent heat produces changes of…

    Specific Heat and Conservation of Energy When energy in the form of heat Q is added to a material, the temperature of the material rises. Note that temperature, in units of degrees Celsius (°C) or Kelvin (K), is a measure of how hot or cold a substance is, while heat, in units of joules (J) or calories (cal), is a measure of its thermal energy. 1cal = 4.19J. A measure of the efficiency with which a substance can store this heat energy is known as specific heat capacity, or simply the specific heat, . The…
