Different scales of temperature are related as follows:. Thermometers are of following three types.
Heat and temperature are a closely related topic, and as such, the difference between the two can be a bit confusing. The core difference is that heat deals with thermal energy , whereas temperature is more concerned with molecular kinetic energy. Heat describes the transfer of thermal energy between molecules within a system and is measured in Joules.
We apologize for the inconvenience...
In thermodynamics , heat is energy in transfer to or from a thermodynamic system, by mechanisms other than thermodynamic work or transfer of matter. Like thermodynamic work , heat transfer is a process involving more than one system, not a property of any one system. In thermodynamics, energy transferred as heat contributes to change in the system's cardinal energy variable of state , for example its internal energy , or for example its enthalpy. This is to be distinguished from the ordinary language conception of heat as a property of an isolated system. The quantity of energy transferred as heat in a process is the amount of transferred energy excluding any thermodynamic work that was done and any energy contained in matter transferred. For the precise definition of heat, it is necessary that it occur by a path that does not include transfer of matter.
Latent heat , energy absorbed or released by a substance during a change in its physical state phase that occurs without changing its temperature. The latent heat associated with melting a solid or freezing a liquid is called the heat of fusion ; that associated with vaporizing a liquid or a solid or condensing a vapour is called the heat of vaporization. The latent heat is normally expressed as the amount of heat in units of joules or calories per mole or unit mass of the substance undergoing a change of state. Because the heat of vaporization is so large, steam carries a great deal of thermal energy that is released when it condenses, making water an excellent working fluid for heat engines. Latent heat arises from the work required to overcome the forces that hold together atoms or molecules in a material. The regular structure of a crystalline solid is maintained by forces of attraction among its individual atoms, which oscillate slightly about their average positions in the crystal lattice. As the temperature increases, these motions become increasingly violent until, at the melting point , the attractive forces are no longer sufficient to maintain the stability of the crystal lattice.

The concept of heat and temperature are studied together in science, which is somewhat related but not alike. The terms are very common, due to their wide usage in our day to day life. There exist a fine line which demarcates heat from temperature, in the sense that heat is thought of, as a form of energy, but the temperature is a measure of energy. The fundamental difference between heat and temperature is slight but significant, heat is the overall energy of the molecular motion, whereas temperature is the average energy of the molecular motion. Temperature is the measure of the intensity of heat. Measures Total kinetic and potential energy contained by molecules in an object.
Short Notes on Heat : Physics
Pressure, temperature and heat are quantities used in everyday life, especially in meteorology. Their physical definition, is however more complex than it seems. It is the result of a long historical evolution. Heat represents the agitation energy of the elementary particles that compose matter: atomic molecules and electrons. In the case of gases, a simple application of the laws of mechanics makes it possible to establish the law of ideal gases relating pressure, volume and temperature.
In this chapter, we explore heat and temperature. It is not always easy to distinguish these terms.
Define heat and temperature and convert between temperature scales.
Посверкивая в красноватом свете туннельных ламп, перед ними возникла стальная дверь. Фонтейн набрал код на специальной углубленной панели, после чего прикоснулся к небольшой стеклянной пластинке. Сигнальная лампочка вспыхнула, и массивная стена с грохотом отъехала влево. В АНБ было только одно помещение, еще более засекреченное, чем шифровалка, и Сьюзан поняла, что сейчас она окажется в святая святых агентства. ГЛАВА 109 Командный центр главного банка данных АНБ более всего напоминал Центр управления полетами НАСА в миниатюре. Десяток компьютерных терминалов располагались напротив видеоэкрана, занимавшего всю дальнюю стену площадью девять на двенадцать метров. На экране стремительно сменяли друг друга цифры и диаграммы, как будто кто-то скользил рукой по клавишам управления.
Отступив в кабинет Стратмора, Сьюзан почувствовала, что начинает терять сознание. В горле нестерпимо горело. Все вокруг светилось ярко-красными огнями. Шифровалка умирала. То же самое будет и со мной, - подумала .
