On completion of this lesson, students should be able to:
Heat is a form of energy that gives sensation of warmth. The SI unit of heat is joule. This note provides short introduction about heat and temperature scale.
Heat equation is Q = msdt where, S is proportionality constant and is known as specific heat capacity. This note details about heat equation and specific heat capacity along with principle of calorimetry.
Temperature is the thermal condition of a body which determines the flow of heat from the body to another body on its contact. It is the average kinetic energy of the molecules contained in the body.
