The importance of the heat (thermal energy)

The heat

The transfer of the heat energy .

The transfer of heat energy.

The heat is a form of energy that transfers from the higher temperature object to the lower temperature object, and is transferred through the conduction, the convection and the radiation.

The heat is thermal energy that flows from the warmer areas to the cooler areas, and the thermal energy is the total of all kinetic energies within a given system.

The temperature is the degree of hotness or coldness of a body, It is measured by three scales of measurement which are Fahrenheit, Celsius and Kelvin and it is the average kinetic energy within a given object.

The thermal energy is a part of the total energy of any object, Its measuring unit is the joule, and it is related to the temperature of an object, the heat energy can be transferred by three ways which are the convection, the conduction, and the radiation.

The heat and the temperature are not the same things because the temperature is related to how hot or cold something is, The measuring devices of the temperature are the thermometers.

The importance of the heat

The heat is very important in our daily life in warming the house, cooking, heating the water and drying the washed clothes.

The heat has many usages in the industry as making and processing the food and manufacture of the glass, the paper, the textile, ………etc.

The steam has a high specific heat (more than the water), It is used to carry a lot of heat energy at high pressures to run the rail engines or the rotors in AC generators.

The water in the swimming pool remains cool even in summer and the people enjoy a lot staying inside the pool because the water has high specific heat.

We use the heat in cooking, We use the utensils for making tea or coffee, or cooking vegetables or rice.

The heat is used as a simple yet effective way to manage the pain and the joint or muscular stiffness, The deep and penetrating heat does not only relieve the pain but also it enhances the recovery process.
