Heat is not the transfer of thermal energy. Heat is the thermal energy. What drives it

across a boundary between substances or objects is a difference in their temperatures.

What causes the transfer of thermal energy?

Thermal energy transfer from high temperature to low temperature. The cause of transfer is the temperature difference.


What is the difference between thermal energy and heat transfer?

Thermal energy is a quantity that can be measured in BTU or Calories. Heat transfer is just a method of transferring that energy from one place to another, or one part of a machine to another part. Heat transfer does not create any energy in itself.


How did the thermal energy of the pan transfer to the counter?

What energies can thermal energy transfer into?

one energy that thermal energy can transfer into is radiation energy. It can transfer into that because of the electromagnetic waves.

What is the transfer of thermal energy from one object to another due to a difference in temperature is known as?

It is known as heat transfer. This transfer can be convective or conductive and is caused by a gradient on temperature. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_transfer


Temperature is the transfer of thermal energy from one object to another?

The transfer of thermal energy when particles of a fluid move from one place to another is convection. Temperature is a measure of how hot or cold an object is compared to a reference point.Another AnswerNo. Heat (the term, 'thermal energy', is obsolete) is defined as 'energy in transit from a warmer body to a cooler body'. So a temperature difference is necessary for heat transfer to take place.It is not heat it is convection.


Is temperature the transfer of thermal energy from one object to another?

no,the transfer of thermal energy from one object to another is called as conduction.. Temperature is a measure of the hotness or coldness of a body.


What is thermal condition?

What is thermal conduction?

Heat transfer from one molecule to another


What is the definition of thermal conduction?

The definition of thermal conduction is heat transfer. Thermal conduction is when heat is transferred from one source to another.


What is a thermal difference?

Simply put, a thermal difference is a difference in temperature between one object and another one, or one area of an object and another area of that same object.


What is the transfer of thermal energy called?

We often use the simple term heat transfer to refer to the transfer of thermal energy. The study of thermodynamicsis where you'll find out all you want to know about thermal energy and how it moves from one place to another.


What are 3 different methods of heat transfer?

Heat (or thermal) energy is kinetic energy due to motion of atoms and molecules. It is energy that is in the process of being transferred from one object to another because of their temperature difference
