calculating specific heat capacity - Mikus
... When in contact with each other, objects at
different temperatures transfer thermal
energy until they reach the same
temperature. This is called thermal
Conservation of energy requires that the
thermal energy lost by the hotter object as it
cools be equal to the thermal energy gained

... isotherms. We have during the last five years complemented this with a thermal properties
laboratory, as both thermal and water related properties are needed by for example the
construction industry and the pharmaceutical industry.
Our thermal property laboratory consists of two parts: measurements ...

... The Origin of Life: from geophysics to biology?
Professor Albert Libchaber
One of the deepest and most controversial questions of our time is that of the origin of
life. In this lecture a hypothesis is presented, according to which the temperature
gradients existing in the earth - which ...
... then we allow them to exchange heat (i.e. energy exchange with no work done
by either one on the other). What does the 2nd law tell us about this situation,
and how might we analyse the relevant physics quantitatively?
The system evolves to the macrostate (i.e. division of energy between the
two sys ...

In physics, thermal conductivity (often denoted k, λ, or κ) is the property of a material to conduct heat. It is evaluated primarily in terms of Fourier's Law for heat conduction.Heat transfer occurs at a lower rate across materials of low thermal conductivity than across materials of high thermal conductivity. Correspondingly, materials of high thermal conductivity are widely used in heat sink applications and materials of low thermal conductivity are used as thermal insulation. The thermal conductivity of a material may depend on temperature. The reciprocal of thermal conductivity is called thermal resistivity.Thermal conductivity is actually a tensor, which means it is possible to have different values in different directions. See #Thermal anisotropy below.
