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

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 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.


Does thermal energy moves?

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


When two objects with the same temperature touch each other what happens to the thermal energy of both objects?

the thermal energy of both will remain constant as there would be no thermal energy transfer


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 are the properties of insulating materials?

Thermal insulation is the reduction of heat transfer (the transfer of thermal energy between objects of differing temperature) between objects in thermal contact or in range of radiative influence. Thermal insulation can be achieved with specially engineered methods or processes, as well as with suitable object shapes and materials.


Is heat the transfer of thermal energy from a higher temperature to a lower temperature?

"Heat" basically refers to the transfer of thermal energy. And yes, such energy will flow from hotter to colder objects.


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 thermal energy transfer?

Heat is a transfer of thermal energy.


Thermal conduction is the transfer of energy by?

Thermal conduction is the transfer of energy


What is the transfer of thermal energy by radiation?

what is the transfer of thermal energy by radiation


What transfer of energy by collision between the atom in the material?

The transfer of energy by collision between the atoms in the material can be either thermal energy or conduction.


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 happens when two objects with different temperature come in contact?

thermal energy(heat) transfer to cooler objects...............................................................................................................


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.


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.


How does thermal energy travel?

Thermal energy travels by conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction occurs when two or more objects of different temperatures are touching each other. The heat flows from the warmer object to the cooler object, until the objects reach equal temperatures. Convection is the transfer of thermal energy through a moving liquid or gas. Radiation is the transfer of thermal energy though matter and space.


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

the heat energy or thermal energy is transfer from on object to another by conduction


What is the name of thermal energy that moves from high tepmerature objects to low trmperature objects?

All thermal energy flows from high temperature objects to low temperature objects. This is the nature of thermal energy.


What is the transfer of thermal energy between two bodies which are at different temperatures?

Thermal energy can be transferred by conduction, convection, or radiation. The formulae for the rate of transfer - if that's what you are after - vary, depending on which type of transfer is predominant.


What type of thermal energy transfer requires that object touch?

There are different types of thermal energy like conduction, convection, and radiation. But the one that requires objects to touch is conduction.


What is the transfer of heat through contact with an object of a different temperature?

The transfer of thermal energy through objects in physical contact is called conduction.


Heat is the transfer of thermal energy because of difference?

heat is the transfer of thermal energy because of difference in what?


Thermal energy flows from what object to what object?

Thermal energy flows from warmer objects to colder objects.
