Heat in Natural Sciences

In Natural Sciences in the topic of heat, we have studied various concepts, from heat conversion to changes of state through to heat balance.

First we analysed how to convert heat among different measures of temperature, Celsius degrees, Pharenheit and Kelvin. Next we studied how at a molecular level, heat can affect an object to change its state. For example increased heat can make an object go from solid, to liquid, and later to gas. 

Heat gives energy to the molecules, so they change their structure, this can be seen as a change from solid to liquid and to gas. Studying heat balance, we have focused on how we can calculate the amount of heat entering and leaving a system.
