02 Mar What is Heat?
Physics tuition class in Miracle Learning Centre is fun and enriching. You will be taught about similar aspects of Science and how to learn study skills too. If you do not like or understand science, you must definitely attend the Physics tuition class at Miracle Learning Centre to arouse and reignite your interest.
What is heat? How does heat work?
Energy is the ability to do work. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. Energy can be converted from one form to another only. Heat is a form of energy that makes belongings hot. Heat is important to us as it keeps us warm.
The main source of heat to earth is the sun, which provides lots of heat to us during the day. Other sources of heat include volcano, geysers, geothermal energy, chemical reactions and friction. When a volcano erupts, some of the heat beneath the ground escapes to the Earth surface. A geyser is a spring that spurts up hot water with a great force from time to time. Geothermal energy is heat energy that comes from the ground. This energy is used to produce electricity. Chemical reactions such as oxidation and combustion produce heat. Heat is produced when friction is created from one object or surface rubbing against another.
Heat cannot be seen but we can feel it. It is a form of energy and is also the transfer of energy. It can make things hot, causing temperature change.
Only a small amount of heat reaches the earth from the Sun. However, this small amount of heat is more than enough to keep the Earth warm so that man and animals can live. Plants use the sun energy to make food. Man and animals depend directly or indirectly on plants for food. The sun also helps us to dry our clothes and fruits and vegetables.
Miracle Learning Centre would like to bring you more facts on physics tuition concepts and experiments. We hope you have understood this physics tuition lesson. Science tuition lessons are formed to help students shine and we believe “You are a MIRACLE!” and you can do it too.
Physics is a very important and vast area of Science which works as the building block for various exciting career options. If Physics has been giving you nightmares and if you think that it is a subject which only has complex formulas and principles then allow us to introduce you to the brighter side of Physics classes where learning is always fun and enriching. Miracle Learning Centre is offering extraordinary classes of A level physics tuition, O level physics tuition, JC physics tuition in Singapore.
