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...

Temperature Sensors

Investigation Into Temperature Sensors Introduction In this project I will be investigating how it is possible to use a temperature sensor to keep a greenhouse from changing temperature too much. This is intended to help plants live and grow in their optimum temperature. This will create a perfect temperature for the enzymes in the plants to work in, and therefore resulting in a maximum growth/production rate. This could be useful for gardeners who wish to grow plants as quickly as possible...

Temperature and Gas

huge amounts of energy, and their molecules are spread out as much as possible. With very little pressure, when compared to liquids and solids, those molecules can be compressed. It happens all of the time. Combinations of pressure and decreasing temperature force gases into tubes that we use every day. You might see compressed air in a spray bottle or feel the carbon dioxide rush out of a can of soda. Those are both examples of gas forced into a smaller space than it would want, and the gas escapes...

Motor Temperature: Insulation Class and Temperature Ratings

MOTOR TEMPERATURE RATINGS A frequently misunderstood subject related to electric motors is insulation class and temperature ratings. This paper tries to describe, in basic terms, the temperature relationships that are meaningful in standard AC induction motors. Some of the same information can be applied to DC motors but DC motors are more specialized and some of the ratings are slightly different. Perhaps the best way to start is to define the commonly used terms. MOTOR SURFACE TEMPERATURES...

Room Temperature Experiment Report

Results The diameter of the cylinder (D) is 0.01m and the length of the heater (L) = 0.07m. The emissivity of the surface was 0.95 and the Stefan Boltzmann constant was 56.7x10-9 Wm-2K-4. The room temperature was assumed to be 25°C which is 298.15K. At a trendy east London bar, a group of body hackers are putting forward their reasons for human augmentation to a packed audience of mainly under-35s, many of whom are sporting piercings and tattoos. Putting a chip under your skin is not so very different...

Temperature and Test Tube

Holder -Ring Stand -2 Thermometers -A Ring Clamp Procedure: 1. Make a data table with headings for time, temperature of Paradichlorobenzene, and temperature of water. 2. Fill a 250mL beaker about 3/4th full of cool tap water. Place a thermometer in the beaker and record the temperature to the nearest 0.2C 3. Obtain a test tube containing solid Paradichlorobenzene from your teacher and gently heat the test tube over a medium Bunsen burner flame...

Factors Influencing Temperature Essay

Temperature is one of the weather elements and measures the degree of hotness and coldness in a place. The temperature of a place is affected by a number of factors such as latitudinal location, seasonal variations, albedo of the place, contrasts between land and sea and elevation. Latitudinal location has the strongest influence on the climatic conditions on a macro/global scale. The rest of the factors then serves to modify these influences and are secondary, operating at a smaller scale. Latitude...

The Relationship Between Heat and Temperature

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. Heat is generally transferred between two different objects by radiation, conduction and convection. Heat is only passed on between objects, with the help of different temperatures. ("This Heat" in The Rough Guide to Rock (3rd ed.) edited by Peter Buckley...
