The transfer of heat energy by molecular and electron collisions within a substance (especially a solid).
The transfer of heat energy in a gas or liquid by means of currents in the heated fluid. The fluid moves, carrying energy with it.
The transfer of energy by means of electromagnetic waves.
The radiation emitted by Earth to outer space.
Newtons Law of Cooling: The rate of loss of heat from a warm object is proportional to the ___________________________(Similarly for the gain of heat by a cool object.)
temp difference btw object and surrounding
Greenhouse Effect: Warming of the lower atmosphere by _________________from the Sun that penetrates the atmosphere is absorbed by Earth and is reradiated at longer wavelengths that cannot easily escape Earth’s atmosphere.
