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...

Heat and Temperature

Heat and Temperature Heat is often described by the average individual as being the change in temperature from hot to cold. “Often the concepts of heat and temperature are thought to be the same, but they are not.” Heat and Temperature, para. 2) Perhaps the reasoning behind the incorrect reasoning is that humans associate the two together because when heat is applied to an object the temperature rises. The kinetic theory of matter better explains the underlying cause as to what takes place...

Absorbing Heat

Introduction- Heat is energy that is warm. Heat energy comes from different energy forms or types like electrical. Heat is also natural, from the sun. Heat transforms by reflecting on something and giving it warmth. The temperatures on the coloured cans will vary because they absorb different amounts of heat. According to the particle theory when an object heats up the particles spread out and move more. Aim- The aim of this experiment is to test how colour affects the amount of heat being absorbed...

Heat and Iron

remove creases. It is named for the metal of which the device is commonly made, and the use of it is generally called ironing. Ironing works by loosening the ties between the long chains of molecules that exist in polymer fiber materials. With the heat and the weight of the ironing plate, the fibers are stretched and the fabric maintains its new shape when cool. Some materials, such as cotton, require the use of water to loosen the intermolecular bonds. Many materials developed in the twentieth century...

The Relationship Between Heat and Temperature

Heat in physics is defined as energy in transit. It is symbolized with the alphabet Q. (Strong, Martin C. The Great Alternative and Indie Discography of Heat) It is mostly connected with different movements of atoms, molecules and other particles. These particles either consist of particles that are either hot or cold. High temperature bodies, are often caused due to the high heat transfer, which is created by chemical reactions, nuclear reactions, electromagnetic dissipation, or mechanical dissipation...

Research Summary Heat Stroke

Research Summary Heat stroke is defined by Knochel and Ouchama (2002, p. 1978) as “a core body temperature that rises above 40°C (105°F) and that is accompanied by hot, dry skin and central nervous system abnormalities such as delirium, convulsions, or coma.” Heat stroke can be the result of either exposure to a high environmental temperature or from an elevated core temperature due to strenuous exercise. However, due to the presentation of an ‘unconscious unknown’ the diagnosis of heat stroke can be...

Heat of Fusion for Ice

7/16/12 Heat of Fusion Heat of Fusion for Ice Introduction: This lab report is a step by step process in calculating the heat of fusion for ice and to compare the differences between salt added to room temperature water and salt added to icy water. To calculate heat of fusion, one must understand heat of fusion. Heat of fusion is the amount of heat required to convert a mass of a solid at its melting point into a liquid without an increase in temperature. As difficult as this may sound,...

swine heat stress

 Swine Heat Stress ABSTRACT The purpose of this research project is to identify the effects of heat stress on swine. Heat stress is physiological distress caused by excessive temperatures usually over 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit that can result in profoundly adverse effects in swine production. The first phase of this project involves the analysis of these harmful effects on sows, gilts, and boars. Multiple journal articles will be used to establish these effects. The final phase...
