Conduction: Vibrations of atoms/molecules transfer heat. Convection: Air molecules move from hotter to colder regions Radiation: Objects radiate infrared electromagnetic waves, where hotter objects radiate more energy. Heat Transfer and R-Values —The R-value of a material is calculated form how it transfers heat —R-values depend on the type and thickness of material. If the thickness doubles, then the R- value doubles. —To make a better insulated wall, you want to build it with a higher R-value Total R-value of a Wall —To find the total R-value of a wall, add the R values of each material layer of the wall. —To find the R-value of each layer, multiply its thickness (inches) by the R-value for 1” of material. Temperature Changes for Water —Specific heat measures how mcu heat energy is required to increase the temperature of 1kg of a substance by 1C —It takes 1kcal to heat 1 kg to liquid water by 1C It takes about 0.5 to heat 1kg of solid ice or gas vapor by 1C —Liquid has a hight heat capacity than gas vapor —If you add 10kcal of heat, liquid will have a smaller temperature increase. Phase Changes for Water ICE: Molecules vibrate in a crystal structure Liquid: Molecules move but are still attracted to each other Gas/Vapor: Molecules move fast and are far apart. Liquid is less dense than ice
