Temperature, Heat, and Heat Transfer
10113041011122Temperature, Heat, and Heat TransferThermodynamics deals with the internal energy of systems (thermal energy) and how this energy is transferred from one system to another. A central concept in thermodynamics is that of temperature. The temperature of an object determines or influences many of its properties. No branch of science has greater consequences for human life than does thermodynamics.
Temperature Temperature is a measure of how hot something is. We will see later that temperature is proportional to the average kinetic energy of the atoms in a sub…
