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.
Checklist for O Level Physics Topic: Transfer of thermal energy
✓ heat is transferred from region of higher temperature to region of lower temperature
✓ how conduction occurs
✓ how convection occurs
✓ how radiation occurs
✓ how colour and texture, surface area, and surface temperature affects radiation
✓ applying the concepts of conduction, convection and radiation to everyday application
