Heat and Temperature
Lecture no. 21 from the course: Physics and Our Universe
Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Beginning a new section, learn that heat is a flow of energy driven by a temperature difference. Temperature can be measured with various techniques but is most usefully quantified on the Kelvin scale. Investigate heat capacity and specific heat, and solve problems in heating a house and cooling a nuclear reactor.
