Points to remember

The main source of heat is sun, we can obtain heat from combustion, friction, and electricity.

* Heat is an energy that raises the temperature of a thing by causing the molecules in that thing to move faster

* Heat is the total Kinetic energy of constituent particles of objects.

* SI unit of Heat is joule (J).

* The measurement of warmness or coldness of a substance is known as its temperature.

* SI unit of temperature is kelvin.

* Temperature determines the direction of flow of heat when two bodies are placed in contact.

* Two objects are said to be in thermal contact if they can affect each other’s temperature.

* Thermal equilibrium exists when two objects in thermal contact no longer affect each other’s temperature.

* Most substances expand when heated and contract when cooled. The expansion of a substance on heating is called the thermal expansion of that substance.

A solid has a definite shape, so when a solid is heated, it expands in all directions i.e., in length, area and volume, all increase on heating.
