That sounds like a definition of "conduction" - as opposed to convection or radiation, which are other modes of heat transfer.

Does thermal heat transfer by the contact touching of two objects?

Yes, it is called transfer by conduction.Transfer by radiation requires no contact and transfer by convection requires contact through an intermediate moving fluid.


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.


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.


What is the difference between contact and non-contact force?

contact force:when two objects are in contact with each other it is called contact force.non-contact force:when two objects are not in contact with eachover


Which force resits motion between objects that are in contact?

The force that resists motion between objects that are in contact is called friction. One object can be stationary or they both can move.


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.


Heat transfer between two substances that are in contact is called?

the answer is conduction because it transfers heat between two substances that are in contact.


What is the transfer of energy by direct contact?

The transfer of heat energy by direct contact is called conduction. The transfer of mechanical energy by direct contact is called work.


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 is transfer of heat through direct contact called?

The transfer of heat through direct contact is called conduction.


Differentiate contact from non contact force?

The force exerted by 2 objects in contact is called contact force. The force exerted by 2 objects without any contact is called non contact force


Why is magnetism called a non contact force?

Because it's not necessary for objects to be in contact (touching) in order to feel the magnetic force between them.


What is the transfer of genetic information called?

The transfer of genetic information is called conjugation. It involves transfer of genetic information from one bacterial cell to another, and requires physical contact between the two bacteria involved.



What is the energy transferred from a hotter object to a cooler object called?

The energy itself is called "heat" or thermal energy. The process is called heat transfer and for objects in contact, it is "conduction" (as opposed to convection or radiation).


Can heat be transferred only through solids?

No, energy will transfer between any adjacent bodies, moreover, a medium is not necessary for energy to transfer between objects at all. That would be a little thing called radiation.



What is the transfer of energy from land and water to air by direct contact?

The transfer of energy from land and water to air by direct contact is called conduction.


What is the interaction between charged objects?

The interaction between charged objects is called electromagnetism.


What kind of transmission the transfer of disease through physical contact?

It's called a direct transfer transmission. It involves contact of an infected person with a susceptible person and the physical transfer of organisms.


The transfer of heat between two objects that touch is called?

When a cold object and a hot object are in direct contact (touching) heat will be transferred through thermal conduction. Normally, heat transfer processes are categorized as thermal conduction, radiative transfer or convection. Heat transfer through thermal conduction is the direct transfer of kinetic energy from one molecule to the nearby molecules. Because temperature is directly proportional to kinetic energy, interactions between neighboring particles exchange energy and that exchange energy gradually works it way from the higher temperature regions to the lower temperature regions. The process of the temperature becoming the same is called thermal equilibration. Convective heat transfer occurs in fluids. If a gas, liquid, or other fluid, changes in fluid density change the buoyancy and will cause fluid to flow (a process called convection) and the heat contained in the warmer fluid is transferred to a new location by the physical movement of the fluid. Radiative transfer occurs when a hot object radiates electromagnetic energy. While the sun is an obvious source of electromagnetic energy, it is also generated in smaller amounts by any object. The hotter objects radiate more electromagnetic energy and the cooler objects absorb it. This radiative transfer is important but not as noticeable usually as the other two. It does occur between objects whether they are in direct contact or not, but is usually so small as not to be important of the objects are touching.
