it would be convection... I think that is what it is... you might want to do some more research.
Thermal energy is used to keep us warm. An example of a use of thermal energy is a radiator. This is because a radiator is used to warm a room and keep people warm.
Warm air rising up is known as a thermal.
Heat (thermal energy) in the warm drink transfers to the ice until they are the same temperature.As the ice gains thermal energy, it will warm up and melt.
The phenomenon is known as a "thermal."
A thermal is a column of rising warm air.
Convection (for solids and liquids). The equivalent transferal of thermal energy in a solid is conduction.
It is thermal energy, which is also known as heat, which makes a light bulb feel warm.
I think that thermal energy is moved from warm areas to cooler areas
its thermal energy because it has heat and a radiator to warm your feet uses heat so that is why its thermal energy.:)
Tornadoes are a product of thunderstorms. Thunderstorms get their energy from warm, moist air, converting thermal energy into kinetic energy.
A thermal is warm air rising off the ground that has been heated by the sun.
warm,hot,good for winter,
Feeling a warm breeze.
A spiral updraught is a thermal (rising column of warm air) in which a bird, hand-glider or glider will circle (spiral) round in to take full advantage of the rising warm air.
thermal energy is energy in the form of heat.
it insulates thermal anergy and keeps the warm in
you are asking 'hot' teacup vs 'warm' kettle. If the universe were 'warm', it would have more thermal energy than a hot' teacup, regardless of the temperature - thermal energy - of the teacup, or it would not exist from 'burning' up. the kettle and the teacup sizes must be defined before the thermal energy can be determined, as well as the specific temperatures involved. doveshawk.
Coal by itself lacks thermal energy, apart from what is given to it by its surroundings (e.g. the Earth--which gives everything on its surface thermal energy--warm air, or other nearby sources of heat).
