Give an example of metal which is a poor conductor of heat.
Stainless steel pans are usually provided with copper bottoms. The reason for this could be that
(a) copper bottom makes the pan more durable.
(b) such pans appear colourful.
(c) copper is a better conductor of heat than the stainless steel.
(d) copper is easier to clean than the stainless steel.
A material which allows heat to easily pass through it is termed as ______________.
What is the direction of heat flow?
Explain why the bulb would not glow in the arrangement shown in Fig.
Which statement is the best example of transfer of heat energy by conduction?
Heat energy is transferred from the surface soil to the rocks below.
Heat energy is transferred from the Sun to the Earth.
Heat energy is transferred from the top to the bottom of a lake.
Heat energy is transferred from the Earth's surface to the upper atmosphere.
Which of the following is not an insulator?
- (a) and (b) above.
Is human body an insulator of heat
A container with of water in it is kept in sunlight, which causes the water to get warmer than the surroundings. The average energy per unit time per unit area received due to the sunlight is and it is absorbed by the water over an effective area of . Assuming that the heat loss from the water to the surroundings is governed by Newton’s law of cooling, the difference in the temperature of water and the surroundings after a long time will be _____________.
(Ignore the effect of the container, and take constant for Newton’s law of cooling , the Heat capacity of water )
When standing barefoot in a cool room having both carpet and tiles flooring, the tile feels colder than the carpet. What can be the reason for this?
The More It Dries the Wetter It Becomes. What Is It?
How are temperature and hotness of body related?
If the temperature difference between the body and surroundings is small, then the rate of loss of heat is directly proportional to _______.
Air is a good conductor of heat.
Say True or False.
In the arrangements A and B shown in Figure, pins P and Q are fixed to a metal loop and an iron rod with the help of wax. In which case are both the pins likely to fall at different times? Explain.
Look at the figure.
The length of wire PQ in case of A is equal to the diameter of the semicircle formed by the wire CDE, in case B. One pin is attached to each wire with the help of wax as shown in Figure. Which pin will fall first? Explain.
Rubber is an example of:
None of these

Heat transfer through convection is only possible in liquids and gases.
Heat transfer cannot occur in the absence of any physical medium between two objects.
Heat transfer always occur from a body at a higher temperature to a body at lower temperature.
The mode of heat transfer between earth and sun is radiation.
