Flashcards in Chapter 10 Deck (17):
transfer of heat through collisions between particles
transfer of heat through the flow of particles
a method of heat transfer that does not require particles to transfer heat from one place to another
energy due to the motion of an object
material that does not allow heat to move through it
circular movement that occurs when warmer, less dense fluid particles rise and cooler, denser fluid particles sink
: a path for electrons to follow, consisting of a power supply, one or more loads, and conductors joining the power supply and loads
physical property of matter that causes it to experience a force when near other electrically charged matter. Electric charge can be positive or negative.
: a build-up of charge in one place
device that can provide an electric current
device that uses electrical energy and converts it into other forms of energy
connected series of materials along which an electric current can flow
a measure of the number of electrons flowing through a circuit every second. An increase in current means an increase in the rate of flow of electrons in the circuit.
coil of wire made from a metal that glows brightly when it gets hot. The filaments in light globes heat up when electricity flows through them.
device that opens and closes the conducting path through which a current flows
measure of the electrical energy required for an electric current to pass through an object. The energy is changed to heat.
