Segments in this Video

Part A: Introduction (01:21)


Heat is a significant part of everyday life; it occurs as a result of burning or electricity. Heat can cause changes in protein and molecules. This video series will investigate the effects of heat and heat transfer.

Part B: Temperature Scales (03:14)

A scale helps us measure heat. Celsius is the most common temperature scale; the U.S. uses Fahrenheit. Learn the typical temperatures for a freezer, a refrigerator, and the human body.

Part C: The Kinetic Theory of Matter (06:45)

Atoms are the building blocks of everything and are in continuous motion. Temperature measures the average kinetic energy of atoms. See examples of diffusion and a list of what the Kinetic Theory helps explain.

Part D: Heat Energy (03:33)

Heat is the amount of energy transferred from a hotter substance to a colder substance. A joule is the unit for all energy forms. Learn the amount of joules necessary to raise a temperature by up to three degrees.

In this program on temperature, we get down to the atomic level to explain how hot things are different to cold things. We describe what a temperature scale actually tells us, and demonstrate how scientists measure the amount of heat energy that water absorbs when it’s heated.
