Transfer of thermal energy – What’s tested for O Level Physics

heat transfer via conduction, convection and radiation

In this post, let’s look at what’s tested in the topic transfer of thermal energy in O level Physics. This is also the topic where you learn about conduction, convection and radiation – which are means of transfer of thermal energy.

Watch the video here to learn in detail.

Below, you’ll find a checklist on the items you would need to know on this topic on transfer of thermal energy.
