What properties does thermal energy depend on?
Thermal energy is the total energy of all the molecules in an object. The thermal energy of an object depends on three things: 4 the number of molecules in the object 4 the temperature of the object (average molecular motion) 4 the arrangement of the object's molecules (states of matter).
Is thermal energy affected by mass?
The thermal energy of matter depends on how fast its particles are moving on average, which is measured by temperature, and also on how many particles there are, which is measured by mass.
Does thermal energy depend on the amount of substance?
does thermal energy depend on the amount of substance you have? yes. the thermal energy is from the random motions of the components of an object.
What are the factors of thermal energy?
The amount of matter or mass and the temperature are the two factors that determine the thermal energy of an object. If a substance contains more mass, then it has more particles; hence, it has high thermal energy.
What are the 3 types of thermal energy?
There are three types of thermal energy transfer: conduction, radiation, and convection. Convection is a cyclical process that only occurs in fluids.
