11/15/2009 1 Heat is defined as energy transferred between systems Methods of energy transfer include Conduction Convection Radiation conduction Thermal Energy is transferred by contact - From high T object to low T object - Or from the high T side to the low T side of the same object Rate of conduction depends upon the characteristics of the substance Most cooking pans use plastic or wood handles instead of metal ones metals conduct thermal energy better than wood/plastic low T Q High T
