Chem 1P - Unit 2

Instructional Segment 2 (IS-2)


Guiding Questions:

Heat & Energy in the Earth System

Students develop models of energy conservation within systems and the mechanisms of heat flow. They relate macroscopic heat transport to atomic scale interactions of particles, which they will apply in later units to construct models of interactions between atoms. They use evidence from Earth’s surface to infer the heat transport processes at work in the planet’s interior.
