The type of heat transfer that occurs between the radiator of a car and the atmosphere, when the car is in motion, is principally convection Heat can only be transmitted through a vacuum by radition The internal energy of a given amount of ideal gas depends only on its temperature. False You can cool a room by leaving a refrigerator door open. False All thermometers give the same result when measuring the temperature of a particular system. False By what method of heat transfer does a microwave oven transfer heat to the food being cooked? radition Heat is energy that is transferred between objects that are in thermal contact because of a temperature difference.

An astronaut working outside the space station loses thermal energy from her body principally through conduction,convection and radiation The heat capacity of a body is the amount of heat it can store at a given temperature.
