Tutor description

Heat, energy and temperature pervade our lives. Just think about it. We give attention to hot and cold in deciding what we wear during the day, at night and when we go to bed. We think about the topic when deciding how many covers, if any at all, we will wrap in or sleep under at night in order to maintain the right temperature.

Introduction to Thermal PhysicsHeat, energy and temperature pervade our lives. Just think about it. We giveattention to hot and cold in deciding what we wear during the day, at night and whenwe go to bed. We think about the topic when deciding how many covers, if any at all,we will wrap in or sleep under at night in order to maintain the right temperature.Many of us have heating and cooling systems in our homes, schools and work placesthat control the temperature during the day and night to keep us as comfortable aspossible without spending too much money. We install fans or use portable fans inour homes to keep us comfortable. Most of us have cars equipped with heating andair conditioning systems; some may even have meters in their cars that register theindoor and outdoor temperatures. Many of us watch and listen to weather reports,especially the forecasted temperatures, with great interest so that we can makedecisions about what to wear and what to do on the following day.Our bodies are highly sensitive to hot and cold. We learn veryearly in life through the University of Pain that we shouldn't toucha hot pot on the stove or a hot light bulb in a lamp. It is aremarkable lesson that makes an impression for a lifetime. In thatsame university, we learn that we should be careful aboutmouthing or tasting hot foods. We learn how to use our hands to feel the heat thatemanates from such foods and we learn how to blow gently on the food to help coolit down. Those
