Short Quiz I use in my physics class as a formative assessment of their understanding of how to do temperature unit conversions, use the heat equation, and apply some of the concepts we have learned. Contains 2 open response style problems and a fill in the blank section. Two versions are provided, one with and one without a word bank for the matching for your convenience. Also, a full answer key is included. Could also be used as a classwork or homework assignment!
Aligned to the following MA state standards:
3.1 Explain how heat energy is transferred by convection, conduction, and radiation.
3.2 Explain how heat energy will move from a higher temperature to a lower temperature until equilibrium is reached.
3.3 Describe the relationship between average molecular kinetic energy and temperature.
3.4 Explain the relationships among temperature changes in a substance, the amount of heat transferred, the amount (mass) of the substance, and the specific heat of the substance.
