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 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.


How does heat transfer from an object to another?

Three ways : Radiation Conduction Convection. The last two require a material connection between the two 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.


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.


Compare and contrast the movement of electric charge in a solution with the transfer of electric charge between solid objects?

Compare and contrast the movement of electric charge in a solution with the transfer of electric charge between solid objects?


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.


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.


What is inductance?

Induction is the transfer of electric charge without contact between objects.


The transfer of electrons from one object to another by direct contact?

The transfer of electrons from one object to another by direct contact is charging by conduction. The transfer of electrons form one uncharged object to another by rubbing the objects together is charging by friction.



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

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


Two objects at same temperature one bigger than the other can heat transfer?

No, there will only be a spontaneous transfer of heat if the objects are at different tempratures.No, there will only be a spontaneous transfer of heat if the objects are at different tempratures.No, there will only be a spontaneous transfer of heat if the objects are at different tempratures.No, there will only be a spontaneous transfer of heat if the objects are at different tempratures.


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.


What is the Difference between convection and thermal conduction?

Conduction is the transfer of heat by contact between objects. Convection is the transfer of heat via fluids (liquids or gases), usually air.


What is another word for distance?

Another word for distance is How far. or space, as in the space between the two objects is unfathomable. as compared to the distance between the two objects is unfathomable.


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.


Can a object contain heat?

No, because heat implies that a transfer has occured between two objects.


Energy transfer as heat between two objects depends on what?

It depends on the respective temperatures of the bodies.




Heat transfer by conduction occurs when?

Heat transfer by conduction only occurs when two objects are in direct physical contact with one another. Convection and radiation are the other types of heat transfer.


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

If the two objects are in a vacuum and there is nothing between them, heat transfers by radiation.If they are separated and their is air between them, heat transfers by convection.If the two objects are in contact (touching) with each other, heat transfers by conduction.


How is heat naturally transferred between objects?

The mechanisms to transfer heat are conduction, convection, and radiation. Heat will naturally flow from hotter to colder objects.
