How does energy from heat transfer from a hot source to a cold source?
thermal energy. The transfer of heat happens when a warm fast moving molecule run into slow a cold ones the heat is then transferred from the warm molecule to the cold one Answer Heat is energy in transit from a higher temperature to a lower temperature. Heat isn't transferred; heat describes the process of transfer.
Convection is the movement of a medium to transfer heat energy fom one place to another. A solid, depending on your definition, will not transfer heat by convection because the solid does not move. A liquid will transfer heat by convection because the individual particles obtain heat from the source, move to a cooler place, and discharge their heat.
Hot air. The particles in the air move at a faster rate because they have more energy than cold air. When you feel something that is hot, what you are really feeling is the transfer of energy from that object to you. Same is true with the opposite. When you feel something cold you really feel the transfer of energy from your hand to that object. Reason: heat and energy are the same thing. The…
