Questions and Answers
• 1.

### What type of heat transfer is happening in this picture?

• A.

Conduction

• B.

Convection

• C.

Radiation

Correct Answer
A. Conduction
Explanation
In the given picture, the type of heat transfer happening is conduction. Conduction is the transfer of heat through direct contact between two objects or substances. In this case, it can be inferred that heat is being transferred through direct contact between the objects in the picture.

### What type of heat transfer is happening in this picture?

• A.

Conduction

• B.

Convection

• C.

Radiation

Correct Answer
B. Convection
Explanation
The type of heat transfer happening in the picture is convection. Convection occurs when heat is transferred through the movement of a fluid, such as air or water. In the picture, it is likely that the heat is being transferred through the movement of air, as indicated by the presence of rising hot air currents. This is a characteristic of convection, making it the correct answer.

### What type of heat transfer is happening in this picture?

• A.

Conduction

• B.

Convection

• C.

Radiation

Correct Answer
C. Radiation
Explanation
In the given picture, the type of heat transfer happening is radiation. Radiation is the transfer of heat through electromagnetic waves. In this case, the heat is being transferred through the emission of infrared radiation from a hot object to its surroundings without the need for any medium or direct contact.

Rate this question:

### What vocabulary term is being describe in this picture?

Correct Answer
greenhouse effect
Explanation
The picture is describing the vocabulary term "greenhouse effect." The greenhouse effect refers to the process by which certain gases in the Earth's atmosphere trap heat from the sun, causing the planet to warm up. This is similar to how a greenhouse traps heat and keeps the interior warm.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Temperature is a measurement of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
A. True
Explanation
Temperature is a measurement of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance. This means that the higher the temperature, the faster the atoms or molecules are moving. Therefore, the statement "Temperature is a measurement of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance" is true.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Heat is the transfer of energy from an area ofÂ cooler temperatures to an area of warmer temperatures.

• A.

True

• B.

False

Correct Answer
B. False
Explanation
Heat is actually the transfer of energy from an area of higher temperatures to an area of lower temperatures. This transfer occurs until thermal equilibrium is reached, where the temperatures of the two areas become equal. Therefore, the given statement is false.
