Comparing Thermodynamic Terms


“What is Temperature? What is Energy? What is Entropy?”


This SWBQ is designed to help find how clear students are on the differences in temperature, energy, and heat, and the activity also helps clarify some of the confusions and misconceptions amongst the thermodynamic terms. It also offers an opportunity to refresh students on what entropy is, a term that many students have not seen for several years. This is helpful because one of the greatest challenges for students in thermodynamics is keeping track of all of the subject's terminology.
