1 11 The transfer of energy by conduction, convection, evaporation and condensation involves particles, and how this transfer takes place. How the arrangement and movement of particles determine whether a material is a conductor or an insulator. The role of free electrons in conduction through a metal. HEAT TRANSFER PROCESS CONDUCTION is the transfer of heat through a substance without any actual movement of the particles of the substance. IS LIKE Convection explained in terms of increased particle separation making a fluid less dense. Applications of convection, such as heating a room or hot water systems. Evaporation and condensation. CONVECTION is the transfer of heat through fluids (liquids and gases) by the actual movement of the particles of the substance. Kinetic theory explanation of evaporation and the cooling effect of evaporation. The factors that affect rate of evaporation and condensation. RADIATION is the transfer of heat from place to place by infra red waves. The rate at which an object transfers thermal energy depends on : Shape, The rate at which an object transfers thermal energy depends on : Surface area and volume. The material from which the object is made. The nature of the surface with which the object is in contact. OBSERVING THERMAL CONDUCTION heat travel direction metal rod The bigger the temperature difference between the object and its surroundings, the greater the rate at which thermal energy is transferred. HOT COLD THERMAL ENERGY TRANSFER PROCESSES Bunsen burner drawing pins attached with wax Thermal (heat) energy is transferred in substances from places at high temperature to places at low temperature by CONDUCTION, CONVECTION And RADATION. Imagine a pupil at the back of the classroom who wants to pass an eraser to one at the front. There are three possible ways of doing this : As one end of the rod is heated, the heat travels along by conduction. As the heat moves along from the HOT end to the COLD end, it melts the wax and so causes the pins to drop off in order. The pins which are closest to the HOT end drop of first. Throwing the eraser Carrying the eraser Passing the eraser from person to person

2 12 WHICH METAL IS THE BEST HEAT CONDUCTOR? SHOWING THAT WATER IS A POOR HEAT CONDUCTOR The apparatus shown opposite can be used to compare the thermal conductivity of four different metals. All four bars have identical dimensions and each has a small ball bearing stuck to its end with wax. The Bunsen flame is positioned in the centre and the heat is conducted along the bars and eventually melts the wax, causing the ball bearings to drop in a certain order. BEST CONDUCTOR SECOND BEST CONDUCTOR THIRD BEST CONDUCTOR WORST CONDUCTOR A piece of ice wrapped in metal gauze is dropped into the water in a boiling tube. When the Bunsen flame is directed at the top of the tube, the water there can be seen to boil while the ice at the bottom does not melt. EXPLANATION The heat from the water at the top of the tube can only travel towards the ice at the bottom by conduction, and the fact that it does not melt, even though the water at top is boiling, shows that water is a poor heat conductor. steam boiling water Metal gauze very poor conduction ice CONDUCTION THROUGH LIQUIDS AND GASES CONDUCTORS AND INSULATORS With the exception of mercury, ALL LIQUIDS ARE POOR HEAT CONDUCTORS. This is because the particles in liquids are Further apart than the particles in solids. ALL METALS are excellent HEAT CONDUCTORS and they are used wherever we want heat to be transferred easily. For example the base and sides of a cooking pan are metallic. GASES are worse HEAT CONDUCTORS than liquids. They are good HEAT INSULATORS. This is because The particles in gases are much further apart than they are in liquids. INSULATORS are wrapped around hot objects so as to reduce heat loss. A good example of this is the thermal insulating jacket which is wrapped around the hot water tank in a house. The jacket contains fibre glass layers which have many tiny pockets of trapped air. A THERMAL INSULATOR is a material that does not allow heat to travel through it easily by conduction. Clothing keeps you warm in cold weather because the interwoven fibres also contain pockets of trapped air and a garment also traps a layer of air between it and you body.

3 PRACTICE QUESTIONS 13 EXPLAINING THERMAL CONDUCTION 1 Use the materials given below to complete the sentences : PLASTIC WOOD STEEL FIBREGLASS... is used to insulate the loft in houses. Sauce pan handles are made of... or.. A radiator in a central heating system is made of 2 Which of the following statements is true and which is false? (a) Conduction involves thermal energy passing between vibrating particles. In non-metallic solids the heat energy is passed on from particle to particle. The particles at hot end vibrate more strongly and this is passed on to neighbouring particles along the length of the rod. Because this conduction process is very slow, non-metals (e.g. plastic, wood, rubber etc.) are poor thermal conductors (i.e. good insulators). (b) Some metals are very poor thermal conductors. (c) Solids are usually better thermal conductors than liquids and gases. (d) Plastic is a poor thermal conductor because it contains free electrons. 3 Use the words in the list below to complete the sentences : VIBRATE ATOMS ELECTRONS COLLIDE In metals the increased vibration of the atoms at the hot end of the rod is transferred to the cold end by two separate mechanisms : Heat transfer in a metal is due to particles called. moving freely inside the metal. They transfer energy when they with the metal.. and with each other. Inter-particle vibrations as for non-metals, and Free electrons which collide with strongly vibrating atoms at the hot end and then move through the rod, transferring their energy by collision with atoms and other electrons. This heat transfer mechanism is much faster than that due to vibrations from particle to particle and accounts for the fact that metals are excellent thermal conductors. 4 (a) Give one example and one use of a good heat conductor. (b) Give one example and one use of a good heat insulator. (c) Why do metal objects at room temperature feel colder than wooden or rubber objects at the same temperature? (d) Explain why solids are better heat conductors than gases and why metals are better heat conductors than non-metals.

4 1.1.3 Energy Transfer by Heating 14 PRACTICAL WORK - OBSERVING CONVECTION CURRENTS THERMAL CONVECTION 1. IN LIQUIDS Convection is the transfer of heat in fluids ( i.e. liquids and gases) caused by the hot fluid rising and the cold fluid sinking. Convection can only happen in liquids and gases but not in solids. This is because liquids and gases can flow and so they can transfer energy from regions of higher temperature to regions of lower temperature. Using a glass tube, a small crystal of potassium permanganate is carefully placed at the bottom of a large beaker of water. When the water is heated as shown, streamers of purple dye are seen to rise and sink, showing the path of convection currents. RISING DYE WATER When a fluid is heated, the more energetic, heated particles move from the hotter region to the cooler region and then transfer their energy by collision. The movement of the heated fluid is called a convection current. EXPLANATION When the water at the bottom is heated, the particles move further POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE apart (i.e. it expands). Its mass CRYSTAL remains the same, so its density decreases. The heated water therefore rises and cooler, denser water from the top then sinks to take its place BUNSEN BURNER 2. IN GASES The burning candle heats the air above it, causing it to expand and rise through the chimney. Cold air is sucked in through the other chimney to replace the hot air which is leaving the box. The direction of the convection current created by the candle flame is made visible by the smoke from the lighted touch paper.

5 15 HEATING A ROOM BY CONVECTION LAND AND SEA BREEZES SEA BREEZE COOL AIR SINKS During the day the land heats up more quickly than the sea, so the air above the land warms up and rises. HOT AIR RISES Cooler air from the sea then flows in to replace the warm, risen air and this creates what we call a sea breeze. cool sea Warm land CONVECTOR HEATER (misnamed as a RADIATOR ) LAND BREEZE As the air above the heater is warmed, it expands and because it then becomes less dense than the cooler air in the room, it rises. The cooler, denser air from other parts of the room sinks and comes in to take the place of the risen air. At night the land cools down more quickly than the sea, so the air above the sea is warmer and therefore rises. In this way the heat is transferred throughout the room by convection currents. Heaters that work in this way are wrongly called radiators, since they heat a room by convection and not by radiation. Cooler air from the land then flows out to replace the warm, risen air and this creates what we call a land breeze. Warm sea cool land

6 16 DOMESTIC HOT WATER SYSTEM Convection currents are used to circulate water around the heating system of a house. A heavy downpour is sometimes followed by bright sunshine and in these conditions, rapid evaporation becomes quite clearly visible. The diagram opposite shows the basics of such a system. The boiler is placed at the lowest point in the house and so the hot water rises towards the roof. It is then fed to baths, sinks and radiators around the house. Cool water from the mains-fed tank in the loft feeds the boiler as needed. EVAPORATION is a process which occurs at all temperatures from the surface of a liquid. boiler MOLECULAR EXPLANATION OF EVAPORATION liquid high energy molecules can escape from the liquid surface. medium energy molecules escape from the Liquid surface, but get pulled back. low energy molecules remain within the liquid. We are very familiar with the process of evaporation in our everyday life. People have used it since time immemorial to dry clothes after washing and the rain that is so vital to the growth of crops is, after all, only water that has previously evaporated from seas, rivers and lakes. The molecules in a liquid have a range of kinetic energies. Those with low energy are bound within the liquid, whereas those having high energy can overcome the attraction forces of surface molecules and thereby escape to become vapour molecules. Some, having a medium amount of energy, escape momentarily, but are then pulled back by the attraction forces of surface molecules.

7 17 FACTORS AFFECTING THE RATE OF EVAPORATION The rate of evaporation can be increased by increasing : The temperature of the liquid. The higher the temperature of the liquid, the greater the number of molecules in the liquid which are moving fast enough to escape from the surface. (That s why it is preferable to hang out the washing on hot, sunny days). The surface area of the liquid. We sweat on a hot day or after vigorous exercise and as the sweat evaporates, it cools us down. A fan blowing air over the body increases the rate of evaporation and so cools us down even more. The evaporation of water from us can also be very dangerous. You can lose heat from your body very rapidly in wet and windy conditions. This can lead to hypothermia, a potentially lethal condition in which body temperature starts to fall. The larger the area of the liquid surface is the greater the number of high energy molecules which will be near the surface and able to escape. (That s why the clothes need to be spread out on the line). The airflow rate over the liquid surface. Increasing the airflow rate increases the number of medium energy vapour molecules which escape by carrying them away before they can return to the liquid. (That s why the clothes dry faster on a windy day). COOLING EFFECT OF EVAPORATION - DEMONSTRATION Dichloromethane is a liquid which evaporates readily at room temperature (i.e. it is a volatile liquid). If air is blown through some dichloromethane in a can, it will evaporate rapidly. dichloromethane can water air THE COOLING EFFECT OF EVAPORATION The rapid cooling which this causes will freeze the water beneath the can. wooden block Evaporation causes cooling. This is because it is the fastest moving molecules (i.e those with the greatest kinetic energy) which escape from a liquid surface. As a result the average kinetic energy of the molecules left behind will decrease and this means a decrease in the temperature of the liquid. Volatile liquids are used in perfumes and after-shave lotions which evaporate readily at room temperature and hence make the user smell nice as well as producing a cooling effect on the skin. Ether acts as a local anaesthetic by chilling (as well as cleaning) your arm when you are being given an injection.

One of the cups has a metal spoon in it and the coffee in this cup is found to be cooler than that in the other cup at the end of the 10 minutes. (b) Two fresh cups of coffee are poured out and a thin plastic lid is placed on top of one of the cups.

10 20 EFFECT OF MATERIAL ON THERMAL ENERGY TRANSFER EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCE ON THERMAL ENERGY TRANSFER Under similar conditions, different materials transfer thermal energy at The bigger the temperature difference between the object and its surroundings, the greater the rate at which thermal energy is transferred. A copper rod and a marble rod of the same size are heated at one end as shown in the diagram. copper This applies to thermal energy transfer by conduction, convection and radiation. As we already know from our study of thermal conduction, the thermal energy will travel much faster in the copper than in the marble. We say that copper is a much better thermal conductor than marble. HEAT HEAT marble For example, if a metal bar is being heated at one end, then the higher the temperature is at that end the faster the thermal energy will be conducted to the other end. The hotter the heating element in a boiler is, the more vigorous the convection will be and the faster the water will be heated. EXPLANATION In the marble, the thermal energy is transferred from particle to particle. Particles at the hot end vibrate more strongly and this increased vibration is slowly passed onto neighbouring particles along the length of the rod. All objects emit infra red (IR) waves, but the hotter the object is, the greater the rate at which thermal energy is radiated. Copper contains free electrons and these provide an additional thermal energy transfer mechanism which is much faster than the inter-particle vibrations. For this reason, if you touch a piece of wood and a piece of metal of the same size and at the same temperature, the metal will feel colder. This is because thermal energy (heat) is transferred out of your hand more quickly by the metal than the wood.

11 1.1.3 Energy Transfer by Heating 21 FACTORS AFFECTING THE RATE OF THERMAL ENERGY TRANSFER In examinations, you will be expected to explain the design of a device (e.g. cooling fins on A motorbike engine) and animal adaptations (e.g. relative ear size of a desert fox compared with an arctic fox) in terms of thermal energy transfer. The rate at which an object transfers thermal energy depends on : Shape Dimensions Mass Type of material What the object is in contact with. Conduction in solids is the transfer of thermal energy by vibrations from particle to particle and in the case of a metal by the motion of energetic free electrons. Since a large piece of metal contains more particles and free electrons than a smaller piece, it will conduct thermal energy at a greater rate. COOLING FINS ON A MOTORBIKE ENGINE All internal combustion engines generate a lot of heat and unless this heat is transferred out of the engine block, the temperature will rise to such an extent that the pistons will literally seize up. In a motorbike the heat is transferred out of the engine by the use of cooling fins around the engine block. The fins are metallic (aluminium alloy) and so rapidly conduct the heat out of the engine block. Large objects conduct thermal energy at a greater rate than small objects of the same material. Hot objects transfer thermal energy by the emission of infra red waves from their surface, so in the case of radiation : The finned design gives as large a surface area as possible in contact with the surrounding air ensuring maximum transfer of thermal energy to the air by convection. The larger the surface area of an object, the greater is the rate of emission and absorption of thermal energy. The large surface area of the fins also means that the transfer of thermal energy by radiation is also maximised. The Shape of an object can also have an effect on the rate at which thermal energy can be transferred through it. Convection, for example, requires the free flow of a gas or liquid, so gaps in or around an object can increase thermal energy transfer by convection. Sometimes the fins are also given a matt black (best radiator) powder coating which further enhances thermal energy transfer by radiation.

12 HOMEWORK QUESTIONS (3) 22 DESERT FOX-ARCTIC FOX RELATIVE EAR SIZE The fennec fox lives in the desert and is adapted to cope with temperatures in excess of 45 C. Relative to its body size, this creature has long legs, long muzzle and very large ears. The enormous ears have a very large surface area to maximise the radiation of body heat and thus keep the animal cool. 1 In a laboratory experiment, an aluminium rod and a glass rod having identical shape and size, are heated at one end. It is found that the thermal energy reaches the cold end of the aluminium rod much faster than the glass rod. Explain this observation in terms of particles and free electrons. 2 The cooling fins on a motorbike engine are specifically designed to dissipate the heat produced by the engine as efficiently as possible. (a) Why are the fins made of metal? In sharp contrast, the arctic fox has adapted to withstand temperatures of 40 C and below. Again, relative to its size this fox has short legs, short muzzle and very small ears. All of these adaptations give low surface area relative to body size and so minimise radiated heat loss. (b) What is the purpose of the finned design? (c) Why would a matt black powder coating on the fins make them more effective? (d) State the methods by which the engine heat is transferred : (i) From the engine to the surface of the fins. (ii) From the surface of the fins to the surrounding air. PENGUIN HUDDLE The dense feathers on penguins trap a lot of air and this together with the thick layers of fat under their skin provides good insulation which allows them to survive in temperatures of 40 C and below. Penguins huddle close together, sometimes in groups numbering over a thousand. This reduces the surface area of the body exposed to the extremely cold weather, which results in a reduction in heat loss through conduction, convection and radiation. Every so often, penguins shift position to allow those who have been at the edges to warm up in the centre of the group. 3 Relative to their body size, desert foxes have much larger ears than arctic foxes. (a) How does having very large ears help the desert fox to cope with very high temperatures? (b) How does having very small ears help the arctic fox to cope with very low temperatures? 4 In order to help them survive extremely low temperatures, penguins huddle together in very large groups. Explain how this helps them to keep warm.
