Units of Heat The quantity of heat contained in a body is not measurable by a thermometer, which indicates only the temperature or intensity. For example, a gallon of water and a pint of water may have the same temperature, but we are certainly aware that the larger body must contain more heat as energy than the smaller body. The unit of heat measure employed in this country is called the British thermal unit (more commonly referred to as the Btu).
If the process is mechanical (such as impact, compression, or the application of a mechanical force), work is done. If it is thermal, radiation, or conduction, then heat is added or withdrawn. Very simple relations exist between mechanical, electrical, and heat energy, and they may be written as shown in Table 1-7. 6 kg-m 778 ft-lb 1055 W-s From these equivalents, it may immediately be apparent that heat is an entity, a real something, for it has a unit of measure and each unit is convertible to other forms of energy at a constant rate of exchange.
One of the simplest indications of value in support of the molecular theory is the age-old knowledge concerning expansion and contraction, caused by heat and cold, respectively, or, as we look at it from the molecular theory, the rate of molecular activity. Temperature Heat and temperature are closely allied, but it must be remembered that heat is energy itself representing the kinetic activity of the molecules composing a substance, whereas temperature is but a measure of the condition of a mass or body as it affects our ideas of warmth or cold.
