Segments in this Video

Heat Transfer (08:53)


Heat is the energy transferred from one object to another, due to a difference in temperature. Learn about the specific heat capacity. Determine the equilibrium temperature reached when hot aluminum is submerged in cool water in an isolated system.

Heat Transfer Review (00:39)

View definitions for heat transfer, specific heat capacity, and equilibrium temperature.

Changes of State (13:19)

Matter changing between solid, liquid or gaseous states is called a phase change. Learn about latent heat, heat of fusion, and heat of vaporization. Determine how many Joules it takes to turn 5 kg of silver from solid to gas.

Part of the Series : Standard Deviants Español Fisíca Series
3-Year Streaming Price: $129.95



Physics is hot, hot, hot! The Standard Deviants start off with the concept of heat transfer so you can figure out how much energy it takes to raise the temperature of a substance. Next, we'll discuss changes of state. How much heat does it take to change ice to water or solid silver to a gas? The topic of heat transfer includes specific heat capacity, equilibrium temperature, energy conservation, latent heat, and heats of fusion and vaporization. The joule is introduced as a new unit of measure. As with the scientific concept of "work", heat transfer is important in physics, biology, and chemistry. It is an ever-present part of our lives, and everyone needs a working knowledge of it.
