Thermal Physics


Specific Heat Capacity

Q= m C ΔT

New node

m = mass (kg)

Specific Latent Heat

Q = m L

L = Specific Latent Heat

From Celsius to Kelvin or vice versa

Energy may be lost to the surrounding

process by which energy is transferred


when we heat a substance

Temperature will increase, New node, New node

Change its state of matter

Heat =/= Temperature

Scalar Quantity

Measure how hot something is

Temperature scales, Celsius, New node, Fahrenheit, Kelvin


Internal Energy

Thermal Energy

Q=C ΔT, Q = Thermal Energy (Joules), C = Thermal Capacity, ΔT = Change in temperature (Kelvin)

Q = V I t, V = Potential Difference, I = Current, t = time

Latent Heat

heat released/absorbed by a body during a change of state

Fusion, solid to liquid

vaporization, liquid to gas
