Lecture 26, spring 2010 ENGR 145, Chemistry of Materials Case Western Reserve University Overview of Thermal Properties [C&R Ch. 17] Some ways that materials store heat (mechanisms of heat capacity) Phonons: atomic vibrations present in all solids Conduction electrons small, even in metals Formation of intrinsic defects even smaller contribution Ways that materials conduct heat (mechanisms of thermal conductivity) Phonons present in all solids Conduction electrons significant in metals, graphite Photons significant in transparent materials Thermal expansion: temperature changes dimensional changes Origin in the interatomic potential 2
