The energy of the molecules that make up an object. It is related to heat, which is the amount of energy transferred from one object to another object that is a different temperature.
Energy possessed by a body because its temperature is higher than its surroundings.
Energy associated with the temperature of an object
The energy emitted from the fireball as thermal radiation. The total amount of thermal energy received per unit area at a specified distance from a nuclear explosion is generally expressed in terms of calories per square centimeter.
the total or sum of the potential and kinetic energies in a substance.
Same as heat.
Energy generated by a flow of heat.
Thermal energy is energy from heat such as geothermal or solar hot water.
The total kinetic energy due to disordered motions and vibrations of a system of microscopic particles such as molecules and atoms.
Properly, thermal energy is used to mean the total amount of energy possessed by an object, while heat indicates the amount of thermal energy transferred in or out.
the total internal kinetic and potential energy from the random motion of particles in matter
heat energy produced by burning coal, oil natural gas or other fuel in thermal power plants.
Thermal energy is the energy associated with heat. A hot object has more thermal energy than an otherwise identical cold object. Hot and Cold
the total kinetic energy possessed by a substance by virtue of the motion of its component atoms.
Thermal energy is the use of heat as a source of energy. Thermal energy can be used directly or can be transformed into mechanical energy (using a steam engine) which can then be transformed into electrical energy. Thermal energy is usually measured in British thermal units (Btu).
The amount of energy in the particles of matter (similar to heat).
Energy associated with the movement of molecules and measured as heat.
energy an object possesses by virtue of its temperature. For example, 1 g of water at 15°C has 4.184 J more energy than 1 g of water at 14°C.
energy in the form of heat.
Random kinetic energy possessed by objects in a material at finite temperature.
The total internal kinetic and potential energy of an object due to the random motion of its atoms and molecules. An object that feels hot has more thermal energy inside it than it does after it has cooled down. Although technically incorrect, the word "heat" is often used to mean thermal energy. See Heat.
The energy derived from heat.
The energy developed through the use of heat energy.
Thermal energy has no generally agreed definition and the term will not usually be found in most dictionaries of physics or science. In everyday usage, thermal energy may be regarded either as 1. a synonym for thermodynamic energy (itself a synonym for internal energy) or as 2. a synonym for heat.
