Heat, energy and temperature pervade our lives. Our bodies are highly sensitive to hot and cold. We learn very early in life through the University of Pain that we shouldn't touch a hot pot on the stove or a hot light bulb in a lamp. It is a remarkable lesson that makes an impression for a lifetime.
In this course we will study the following topics:
1. Temperature and temp. scales
2. Thermal expansion
3. Consequences of expansion
4. Specific heat capacity
5. Latent heat
