Thermal Capacity

Thermal Capacity problem 22

Determine whether each of the statements is correct:

  • Heat flow rate transfers heat through matter.

  • Heat current always flows from colder substance to warmer.

  • The greater the heat flow rate, the more heat passes through the substance in the shortest possible time.

  • The unit for heat flow rate is Joule per second (J / s) or watt (W).

  • The heat flow rate does not depend on the substance through which the heat passes.

  • The heat flow rate is independent of the body shape through which the heat passes.

  • Fluffy or woollen clothing reduces heat emitted by the body.
