Heating

Key Stage 3

Meaning

Heating is a way of transferring energy from one Energy Store into another through Conduction, Convection or Thermal Radiation.

About Heating

Heating happens when two objects of different temperature are in contact with one another.
Energy is transferred from the hotter to the cooler object until they reach 'Thermal Equilibrium' which means they are both at the same temperature.
Heating transfers energy from the Thermal Energy Store of one object to the Thermal Energy Store of another object.

There are three ways that heating can occur:

About Heating

Heating happens when two objects of different temperature are in contact with one another.
Energy is transferred from the hotter to the cooler object until they reach 'Thermal Equilibrium' which means they are both at the same temperature.
Heating transfers energy from the thermal energy store of one object to the thermal energy store or the internal energy store of another object.
When heating increases the thermal energy store of an object the temperature will increase.
When heating increases the internal energy of an object this may increase its temperature or it may cause it to change state, eg Melting or Boiling.

There are three ways that heating can occur:
