Unformatted text preview: Preview of Period 4: Transfer of Thermal Energy 4.1 Temperature and Thermal Energy How is temperature measured? What temperature scales are used? 4.2 How is Thermal Energy Transferred? How do conduction, convection, and radiation energy transfer differ? 4.3 How Can Thermal Energy Transfer be Minimized? What determines the amount of heat flow through a surface? 4-1 Summary of Forms of Energy Mechanical Energy of Motion: The energy exhibited by objects in motion. Thermal Energy: The unorganized energy of motion of vibrating atoms and molecules. Sound Energy: The organized energy of motion of vibrating atoms and molecules. Electrical Energy: The energy resulting from forces between charged particles. Magnetic Energy: The energy resulting from the forces between magnets. Radiant Energy: The energy resulting from vibrations of charges, such as radio waves, microwaves, or visible light. Gravitational Potential Energy: The energy stored in raised objects, which could fall. Strain Potential Energy: The energy stored in a stretched or compressed spring. Chemical Potential Energy: The energy available in the chemical bonds binding atoms together. Electrical Potential Energy: The energy stored by static electric charges....
