Conceptual Physics Alive: Heat Radiation includes a digital video and questions set with answers.

Observe Paul Hewitt teach in a classroom with real students, using engaging demonstrations and artwork. In this video, the temperature dependence of radiation frequencies are related to the greenhouse effect. The way in which sunlight spreads differently over parts of the earth helps explain the warmth of the equatorial regions and coolness of polar regions. Segment length: 32 minutes

Heat Radiation Includes:

  • Review of heat transfer by radiation.
  • Radiant energy: Everything is emitting: everything is absorbing.
  • Hewitt shows a wooden box with a hole in it. The hole looks black, while the interior is white.
  • Blackness of eye pupils.
  • Twice-as-hot coffee story to illustrate the concept of absolute zero.
  • Review of the Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales.
  • Introduction of the Kelvin scale.
  • The "Celsius-the-Village-Tailor" story.
  • Newton's law of cooling; Rate of cooling- delta T.
  • Example of a house ' leaking" heat energy.
  • Example of delta T and frogs.
  • Example of delta T and people.
  • The physics of cooking lobsters and crabs.
  • Warmness of tropics and coolness of Arctic.
  • The earth's tilt and seasons.
  • Arctic Circle.
  • Shortness of nights in brother's farm in Costa Rica.
  • Hewitt holds two sheets of paper in an imaginary rain to show how their different angles are analogous to the angle of sunlight on earth that produces seasons.
