Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Which of the following is the best example of heat transfer by conduction?
    • A. 

      Heat transfer from the bottom of the ocean to the top

    • B. 

      Heat transfer from the Sun to Earth

    • C. 

      Heat transfer from Earth’s crust to the layer below (mantle)

    • D. 

      Heat transfer from Earth’s surface to the upper atmosphere

  • 2. 
    Which method of heat transfer does not require the presence of any particles?
    • A. 

      Transfer of heat via convection. There are no particles in air or liquid required for convection

    • B. 

      Transfer of heat via electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic waves do not need a medium to travel in                                                     

    • C. 

      Transfer of heat via conduction. Conduction is just through contact between surfaces

    • D. 

      Transfer of heat via convection in air. There are no particles in air

  • 3. 
    If all objects are at ‘room temperature’, why do metal objects feel cooler to touch than wooden objects?
    • A. 

      Metals are good conductors of heat. Heat moves easily from your warm hand to the metal so the metal feels warmer than the wood

    • B. 

      Woods are good conductors of heat. Heat moves easily from your warm hand to the wood so the wood feels colder than the metal

    • C. 

      Woods are good conductors of heat. Heat moves easily from your warm hand to the wood so the wood feels warmer than the metal

    • D. 

      Metals are good conductors of heat. Heat moves easily from your warm hand to the metal so the metal feels colder than the wood

  • 4. 
    Microwaves and Gamma Rays are forms of light. True or False?
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    If the Specific Heat capacity of Aluminium is 0.900 J/g/C, how many KJ of energy is required to heat 300g of Aluminium from 50 to 75 Degrees?
    • A. 

      67.5 KJ

    • B. 

      6.75KJ

    • C. 

      6750KJ

    • D. 

      0.675KJ
