It depends on the respective temperatures of the bodies.

Can energy transfer happen between two objects when each object has the exact same energy?

When each object has the same energy, energy transfer can still occur between objects. The object with the greatest mass or traveling speed will transfer the energy.

What term is the transfer of energy between two objects?

The transfer of energy between two objects is referred to as heat transfer. It is always called heat transfer, regardless of what kind of energy is being transferred.HeatThermal energy.yes. btw, that's not a question.

What term describes the transfer of energy between objects that have different average kinetic energies?

The transfer of energy between two objects at different average thermal kinetic energies (temperatures) is referred to as heat transfer. It is always called heat transfer, regardless of what kind of energy is being transferred.

What transfer of energy naturally occurs between objects?

If two objects of different temperature are brought into contact, internal energy is transferred via heat. If two objects collide, kinetic energy is transferred between them.

How is the energy transfered when the object are in contact?

energy transfer occurs due to random collision of different molecules of the objects with each other,if the objects are of equal energy,there will be no detectable heat transfer,as molecules have same energy,but in between the objects having different heats the energy transfer occurs,due to the random collision of molecules with each other.

Why does transfer of heat energy take place between objects?

Because transfer of heat requires particles, so solid objects will be better at conducting heat than gas.

How do you know that the transfer of heat energy occurred between two objects?

when two cold objects are rubbed against with each other...

Describe the three basic mechanisms of heat transfer?

1.Conduction or diffusionThe transfer of energy between objects that are in physical contact2.ConvectionThe transfer of energy between an object and its environment, due to fluid motion3.RadiationThe transfer of energy to or from a body by means of the emission or absorption of electromagnetic radiation

Does thermal energy moves?

Such energy can be transferred. Usually it will transfer from hotter objects to colder objects.

Conditions for no heat transfer between two objects?

Heater is energy. Energy transfers from the higher energy unit to the lower energy unit, until they reach equilibrium. Equilibrium is when both objects contain the same amount of energy, therefore it is impossible for any to transfer between each other. The basic conditions for no heat transfer between two objects is for them to be the same temperature. To keep them at that same temperature, they would have to be floating in a perfect vacuum chamber so they had no contact with matter whatsoever. They would have to be shielded from infrared heat energy as well.

Can heat be transferred only through solids?

No, energy will transfer between any adjacent bodies, moreover, a medium is not necessary for energy to transfer between objects at all. That would be a little thing called radiation.

What is the formula for the transfer of kinetic energy between two objects colliding?

It depends if it is an elastic collision or not. Elastic colisions have conservation of energy and momentum. If one of the object deforms in the collision, it is not elastic and energy is not conserved. .5m1v1i2+.5m2v2i2=.5m1v1f2+.5m2v2f2

Heat is the transfer of thermal energy from one object to another because of a difference in?

Heat is not the transfer of thermal energy. Heat is the thermal energy. What drives itacross a boundary between substances or objects is a difference in their temperatures.

What are the 3 ways that heat transfer can occur?

Conduction, convection, radiation Conduction: The transfer of energy by collisions between the atoms and molecules in a material. Convection: Transfers heat when particles move between objects or areas that differ in temperature. Radiation: The transfer of energy by waves.

What is the transfer of energy from warmer objects to cooler objects?

The transfer of heat is effectively the transfer of vibration from a substance with higher level (warmer) to another at a lower level (cooler). The vibration is thought to relate to the actual substance. But I believe that there is a medium in the Universe made of particles which transmit vibrations between objects. For example between the sun and Earth.

What is the differece between thermal energy and heat?

Thermal energy is a specific type of energy that all objects have. Heat refers specifically to the TRANSFER of this type of energy. I believe this is similar to the difference between "mechanical energy" and "work" (where "work" refers to the transfer of such energy). However, the two terms are actually often used interchangeably.

What is the big idea of energy transfer in elementary science?

Energy can be transferred between objects, and can change its form.However, energy is neither created nor destroyed.(Law of Conservation of Energy)

What is the transfer of energy as heat between objects that are in direct contact called?

That sounds like a definition of "conduction" - as opposed to convection or radiation, which are other modes of heat transfer.

The type of energy transfer that takes place between objects in direct contact is called what?

Energy is mainly transferred in the form of heat. So,transfer of heat energy from one body to another by direct contact is called thermal conduction.

What slows the transfer of energy from a warmer object to a cooler object?

If those two objects are in contact of one another then energy transfer would be rapid. But if those two objects are far apart then energy transfer will be much slower. It is the heat energy that transfers from warmer object to a cooler object.

How long does thermal energy transfer between objects?

Since different objects have different heat conductivity and different temperatures and heat capacities, the time can vary without limit.
