Homework Help: Chemistry: Thermal Energy

Posted by Cicilia on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 10:18pm.

Hi! I have a quiz tomorrow and there are a couple of things that I am confused about:

-Why does heat cause convection currents in gases and liquids, but not solids?
-How can one object feel warmer than another object if they are at the same temperature?
-Why doesn't the temperature change during a phase change? What is happening to the added energy during these times?

Thanks in advance!
