Weather Factors 2.2 Heat Transfer

convection currents
the upward movement of warm air and the downward movement of cool air
1) radiation, 2) conduction, 3) convection
Name three ways that heat can be transferred.
convection
What is the major way that heat is transferred in the troposhpere?
temperature
AVERAGE amount of energy of motion of each particle of a substance
degrees
units of temperature measurement
Celsius
temperature scale used by scientists
Fahrenheit
temperature scale used to report the weather
freezing point of water on Celsius scale
100°
boiling point of water on Celsius scale
32°
freezing point of water on Fahrenheit scale
212°
boinging point of water on Fahrenheit scale
heat
energy transferred from a hotter object to a cooler one
temperature
measure of how hot or cold an object is compared to a reference point
thermal energy
TOTAL energy of motion in the particles of a substance
thermometer
instrument used to measure air temperature
heat
transfer of thermal energy from one object to another because of a difference in temperature
conduction
the direct transfer of heat from one substance to another substance that it is touching
convection
transfer of heat by the movement of a fluid
