Study Notes

Heat Transfer

  • Energy carriers involved in heat transfer are phonons (quanta of lattice vibrations) and photons (quanta of electromagnetic radiation)
  • Heat is the thermal energy in transit due to a temperature difference

Energy Storage

  • The state of energy stored within matter is described as internal energy

Heat Transfer Processes

  • Heat transfer processes are governed by the laws of thermodynamics
  • These processes occur at the atomic and molecular level

Test your knowledge of heat transfer physics with this quiz! Explore the principles of energy storage, transport, and transformation by different energy carriers, including phonons, electrons, fluid particles, and photons. Challenge yourself to understand the kinetics of heat transfer and its impact on matter.
