Resource summary

Question 1

Question
What are the 3 ways heat can be transferred?
Answer
  • Insulation, conduction, radiation
  • Conduction, radiation, convection
  • Convection, conduction, irradiation

Question 2

Question
Materials that are poor conductors of heat and that can sometimes block heat transfer are called insulators.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 3

Question
As air is [blank_start]heated[blank_end], its particles gain energy and move [blank_start]further[blank_end] apart, becoming [blank_start]less[blank_end] dense. This hot air is less dense than cool air and so it is pushed [blank_start]upwards[blank_end] by the cooler air around it.
Answer
  • less
  • heated
  • further
  • upwards

Question 4

Question
Mark the correct boxes that show examples of conduction.
Answer
  • Being warmed by an open fire
  • Heat flowing from a warm coffee cup to your hands
  • Water being heated in a saucepan
  • A saucepan getting hot on a stovetop

Question 5

Question
Substances that transfer heat easily are known as conductors.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 6

Question
Convection currents occur in
Answer
  • Solids
  • Liquids
  • Gases

Question 7

Question
Radiation transmits heat as [blank_start]invisible[blank_end] waves that travel at the speed of [blank_start]light[blank_end]. Heat travels through empty space between the Earth and the Sun. Heat from the sun cannot be transferred by [blank_start]conduction[blank_end] or convection because there are no [blank_start]particles[blank_end] to vibrate or flow in the vacuum of space.
Answer
  • invisible
  • light
  • radio
  • light
  • sound
  • Lewis Hamilton's racecar
  • Winx
  • conduction
  • radiation
  • infiltration
  • particles
  • dust
  • snowflakes

Question 8

Question
What happens to heat energy when it hits a surface?
Answer
  • reflected, absorbed and transmitted
  • reflected, rebounded and absorbed
  • rebounded, transmitted and infiltrated

Question 9

Question
[blank_start]Dark[blank_end] coloured objects heat up more [blank_start]quickly[blank_end] in sunlight than lighter coloured objects. This is because they are good [blank_start]absorbers[blank_end] of radiation, whereas lighter objects [blank_start]reflect[blank_end] most of the heat and don't heat up as quickly.
Answer
  • Dark
  • quickly
  • absorbers
  • reflect

Question 10

Question
Temperature tells us how hot or cold something is.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 11

Question
Heat is.....
Answer
  • A form of energy that describes the energy of all particles in an object
  • a measure of the temperature of an object
  • hot and cold
