There are 3 types of thermal energy: conduction, convection, and radiation. Conduction: Heat transfer between objects that are touching. Example 1: The bottom of a pan on the stove gets warm when the stove is truened on. Example 2: Hugging your best friend. Convection: Heat transfer in a fluid/air-hot air rises and cold air sinks.What causes the transfer of thermal energy?
Thermal energy is transferred from hot places to cold places by convection. Convection occurs when warmer areas of a liquid or gas rise to cooler areas in the liquid or gas. Cooler liquid or gas then takes the place of the warmer areas which have risen higher. This results in a continous circulation pattern.What are some fun facts about thermal energy?
Here are four simple fun facts: Thermal energy is often referred to as ‘waste energy’, as it is a byproduct that in many circumstances is unusable or very inefficient to use. Thermal energy is not well defined. Internal energy can be referred to as thermal energy and can be changed not only by temperature but by simply adding mass to the system.
