High School Science Activity: Particles and Heat
This activity allows the user to visualize the relationship between particles and heat. When objects are heated, the particles that they are made up of begin to move faster.
These particles moving quickly, create heat. This heat energy can be transferred to another object’s particles. Use the activity below to see how this works.
This activity can be found in our High School Chemistry course.
This course surveys all key areas of chemistry, including atomic structure, chemical bonding and reactions, solutions, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, organic chemistry, and nuclear chemistry. The course includes direct online instruction, virtual laboratories, and related assessments, used with a problem-solving book.
