Qasim Tariq 11-01-2020Notes

After studying this unit, the students will be able to:

  • recall that thermal energy is transferred from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature.
  • describe in terms of molecules and electrons , how heat transfer occurs in solids.
  • state the factors affecting the transfer of heat through solid conductors and hence, define the term Thermal Conductivity.
  • solve problems based on thermal conductivity of solid conductors.
  • write examples of good and bad conductors of heat and describe their uses.
  • explain the convection currents in fluids due to difference in density.
  • state some examples of heat transfer by convection in everyday life.
  • explain that insulation reduces energy transfer by conduction.
  • describe the process of radiation from all objects.
  • explain that energy transfer of a body by radiation does not require a material medium and rate of energy transfer is affected by:
    colour and texture of the surface
    surface temperature
    surface area
  • describe convection in water heating by putting a few pinky crystals in a round bottom flask.
  • explain that water is a poor conductor of heat.
  • investigate the absorption of radiation by a black surface and silvery surfaces using Leslie cube.
  • investigate the emission of radiation by a black surface and silvery surfaces using Leslie cube.

Aim and Purposes:

Education is very expensive nowadays. Our only purpose is to educate everyone for free. We want to bring an educational revolution. Our aim is that nobody should be left behind, everyone should get knowledge and quench his thirst for knowledge. For this noble cause, we have hired a lot of experienced teachers and technical experts, who are serving you without any cost. If you want to be a part of this noble cause, you can contact us at

Report a mistake:

EducatedZone has been working for the help of students since 2017. With the passage of time, many senior students and teachers have joined our team to become the part of this noble cause. They provide us notes and helping material to share with public. As different persons are notes provider so there may be a chance of mistake in some notes. Although it happens rarely, but if you find some mistake in the helping material, you can report it at
