# Midterm 1 Learning Objectives

## Heat Transfer

- Describe physical mechanisms of conduction, convection, and radiation.
- Recognize the heat transfer mechanisms in physical situations
- Create and present estimations of power and energy flow from conduction and heating materials
- Select reasonable mathematical models for common physical situations.
- Convert thermal quantities between common unit systems.
- Able to describe the dimensions of thermal quantities.
- Able to relate the heat flow through an object based on its dimensions and properties.
- Able to relate the energy added to a material to its temperature rise, mass, and properties.
- Able to calculate R and U values for a given insulating structure

## Electricity and circuits

- Use circuit models to describe heat flow in physical systems
- Calculate energy and heat delivered by electrical systems given voltage and current

## Quantitative Argument

- Produce descriptions of estimates that clearly describe models, intentions, and implementations.
- Draw diagrams that clearly indicate energy flows and other important physical quantities.

## Computation

- Able to create and communicate reproducible models and calculations of energy quantities.
