UNIT 3: HEAT

heat websiteHeat is a form of energy.  When a substance absorbs heat, its particles move faster.  The absorption leads to a rise in temperature or a change in phase-from solid to a liquid, or a liquid to a gas.  A hotter substance will transfer heat to a colder substance through direct contact, through movement (such as wind), or though radiation  In this unit, you will learn many interesting facts about thermodynamics, the study of heat. (Prentice Hall Conceptual Physics-Paul Hewitt)
