Mini-Quiz: Heat Transfer

by Ron Kurtus (revised 26 May 2006)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. Can you have heat transfer by conduction between a gas and a solid?

Yes, like feeling chilly from cold, still air

No, because conduction is only with solids

It depends what the gas is

2. Can you have transfer heat by convection in a solid?

Yes, because the atoms are all in motion

Only for conductors of electricity

No, because convection requires the flow of atoms

3. Can heat transfer by radiation go through a wall?

No, because the wall blocks the infrared radiation.

Yes, because radiation travels through a vacuum

Only when walls are made of a metal

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
