Title: Heat%20Transfer

1
Heat Transfer
• Chapter 12, Section 5

2
Essential QuestionsChapter 12 Section 5
1. How is temperature measured?
2. In what three ways is heat transferred?
3. How is heat transferred in the troposphere?

3
Heat transfer in the troposphere plays an
important role in influencing Earths weather.
4
Thermal Energy and Temperature
• Remember temperature is the average amount of
energy of motion of each particle of a substance.
• Thermal energy is the total energy of motion in
the particles of a substance.
• Video Overview Video Heat Temp

5
Measuring Temperature
• Instrument used thermometer
• A thermometer is a thin glass tube with a bulb on
one end that contains a liquid usually colored
alcohol.
• How a thermometer works Liquids expand when
heated and contract when cooled. When the
thermometer is heated, the liquid expands and
rises up the tube.

6
Temperature Scales
• Temperature is measured in units called degrees
• Two common temperature scales are Fahrenheit and
Celsius.
• Scientists use Celsius
• Weather reports in the U.S. use Fahrenheit
• Video

Comparing Fahrenheit to Celsius
Degrees Fahrenheit Degrees Celsius
Freezing point of pure water 32 0
Boiling point of pure water (at sea level) 212 100

How Heat is Transferred
• Heat is the transfer of thermal energy from a
hotter object to a cooler one
• Three ways to transfer heat in the atmosphere
• Conduction
• Convection

9
• The direct transfer of energy by electromagnetic
waves
• Example The Sun shining on your face makes your
face feel warm

10
Conduction
• The direct transfer of heat from one substance to
another substance that it is touching
• Works well in solids but not in liquids and gases
• Metal conducts heat well
• Air and water do not conduct heat well

11
Convection
• The transfer of heat by the movement of fluids
(liquids and gases)
• Video

12
Heating the Troposphere
• Radiation, conduction, and convection work
together to heat the troposphere
• Sun shines on surface of Earth and heats it
• The heated surfaces transfer heat to the air that
is touching them. Think of the air just above a
hot parking lot. (conduction)
• This only heats the first few meters above
Earths surface

13
In the troposphere, heat is transferred mostly by
convection.
• Convection currents are the upward movement of
warm air and the downward movement of cool air.
(Warm air rises, cool air sinks)
• Convection currents move heat throughout the
troposphere
