State the three different ways heat can move
What is a conductor? Give an example
A conductor is a material that allows heat to pass through to eg. copper, aluminium and brass
What is an insulator? Give an example
An insulator is a material that does not allow heat to pass through it eg. a lagging jacket, clothes and fibreglass
This is the way heat moves through a material without the material moving eg. along a metal spoon
What is convection?
This is the movement of heat in liquids and gases by flowing currents eg. heating water
This is the movement of heat in rays eg. the sun and the grill
State the temperature water boils at
If we increase the pressure does the boiling point of water increase or decrease?
If we decrease the pressure does the boiling point of water increase or decrease?
Explain latent heat
Latent heat is the heat taken in or given out when a substance is changing state without changing temperature
