Saturday Morning Science: Heat Transfer

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent

Heat Transfer 

If heat is added to something, the temperature will go up. However, what does that mean? How do we define heat or temperature? Temperature is used as a means to discuss how hot or cold an object is. Temperature measures the average kinetic energy of the object, i.e. the average rate at which the particles that make up the object are moving. Heat is a measure of the total energy of an object, and depends on three factors: 1) mass – a lake at 20º C holds more heat energy than a glass of water at 20º C; 2) the type of matter – one kg of water at 20º C holds more heat energy than one kg of aluminum at 20º C; 3) the temperature – one kg of water at 90º C holds more heat energy than one kg of water at 20º C.

We will be conducting experiments to see the effects of heat transfer.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
