heat and thermodynamics

How do objects heat up and cool?

Heat_cool1Heating and cooling are common phenomena. The current project was aimed at verifying these processes quantitatively. For example, it was investigated if geometry, size, and the object’s material had any role to play in the rates of heating and cooling. Newton’s laws of cooling was also verified in the process. Some parameters that turned out to be particularly important included: surface area through which heat transfer occurred, heat capacity and density of the material.
