Physics is a study of Energy and its transformations. Heat is the most common form of energy that is transferred or transformed when bodies interact. This module will help you understand the concept of heat as a form of energy and the mechanisms related to its conversion and transformation.
Conversion and transformation of heat has an effect of altering the temperature of the interacting systems. Temperature variation in turn has effects on our personal comfort and on substances that we use every day. The methods presented in this module have applications in almost all areas of professions. Daily temperature in weather forecast, medical professionals, craftsmen, technicians etc. monitor temperature for various purposes in various methods. You will develop skills of measuring temperature and using them to analyze the laws of heat exchange and broader science of thermodynamic laws.
Therefore inclusion of a module on thermal physics is justified by the above mentioned facts.
