YenThi's Thermal Energy

How: Thermal energy is transferred by either convection, conduction, or radiation.

Why: Image result for why does thermal energy happen. Thermal energy is actually a type of kinetic energy possessed by different objects. Heat in an object is actually just fast moving molecules. Many heaters work by warming up air, which is making its molecules move faster

When: Thermal energy happens when an object loses its heat.

This picture, is a picture of convection. I chose this picture because, convection means the movement caused within a fluid by the tendency of hotter stuff, and therefore less dense material to rise, and colder.

This is a picture of radiation. I chose this picture because it reflects what the definition of radiation. The definition of radiation is the emission of energy as electromagnetic waves or as moving subatomic particles, especially high-energy particles that cause ionization.

This is a picture of conduction. I chose this picture because, the definition of conduction resembles the picture because conduction means, that something is touching an object to make heat. Well that was what the picture was, a body sitting on an chair to warm the chair.

This is a video about thermal energy. Thermal energy, like it says in the video, is either conduction, convection or radiation.

This is a picture of my groups solar oven. We put foil around all the sides including the insides. Then we put newspaper on the flaps. When we tested it it went up to about, 105 degrees Fahrenheit. It wasn't what we expected because we thought the cheese would melt, but it didn't. Finally we critiqued it and added a lot more newspaper and it went up to 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
