Temperature vs. Heat

 Temperature- a measure of the amount of kinetic
energy in a substance
 Heat- a transfer of energy between two objects due
to a difference in temperature
 Heat always moves from hot to cold
3 Ways Heat can be
Transferred

 Conduction
 Convection
Conduction

 The transfer of heat (energy) from one substance to
another substance that is touching it
 It is most effective in solids, but can happen in liquids
 Fun fact: Have you ever noticed that metals tend to feel
cold?
 Believe it or not, they are not colder! They only feel
colder because they conduct heat away from your hand.
You perceive the heat that is leaving your hand as cold
Convection

 The transfer of heat (energy) by the movement of
matter.
 Happens mostly in gas and liquids
 This happens with currents
 Colder matter (more dense) sinks below warmer
matter and pushed warmer matter up
 Have you ever heard of the saying “warm air rises”
 Why does colder matter sink? (hint: use kinetic
energy, molecules, and density)

 Electromagnetic waves directly transport energy
through space
 Done without the help of fluids or solids
 Travel in waves

Typically, thunderstorms with large cumulonimbus clouds only
occur in warmer months. That is because they are formed by….
A. Convection
B. Conduction
Radio waves are an example of…
A. Convection
B. Conduction
This causes plate tectonics (movement of plates on Earth’s surface)
A. Convection
B. Conduction
devices
A. Convection
B. Conduction
This causes trade winds, westerlies, and easterlies that affect major
weather patterns. For example: The ITCZ near the equator most
often has clouds and rain. This is also where rainforests are.
