This Integrating Technology
eBook was designed & developed
for Ms. Jackson's 8th Grade
Physical Science Classes at
Camden Middle School.
Energy is always
transferred from warmer temperatures to cooler
temperatures. Although we often think of our sun when we think of
radiant energy, small creatures such as this cockatiel also radiate
energy in the form of radiant heat. If we were to see an infrared
picture, we would see the greatest amount of heat escapes from his body
through his eyes as they are the least insulated...the heat leaves his
body, and moves outward to the air surrounding him which is
cooler than the core area of his body. Hot always chases cold!
Standard S8P2: Students will be familiar
with the forms and transformations of energy.
how heat can be
transferred through matter by the collisions of atoms (conduction) or
through space (radiation). In a liquid or gas, currents will
facilitate the transfer of heat (convection).
PLO: Students will understand
the three ways in which heat is transferred: conduction,
radiation, and convection.
