EVERYDAY WORLD OF SCIENCE


HEAT

Do i like summer better than winter because the weather is warmer? My bodies need to be kept warm, and if they get too cold, I will die. So in winter i have to wear more clothes to keep in the heat of my bodies.

Most of the heat in our world comes from the Sun. If the sun didn't shine, the world would be a very cold place. Nothing would be able to live here. I can make heat by burning fuels such as wood, gas and oil. I can also make heat from electricity, such as happens in electric fires and electric cookers.

Like other kinds of energy, heat can move from one place to another. When i stir a cup of tea with the cold spoon, what happens? The handle of the spoon gets hot. I call this way heat moves, conduction. Heat always goes from something hot to something cold.

Sound



When me are riding my bicycle, and someone gets in my way, I ring my bell. The other person hears my bell, and jumps out of the way. The bell has made sounds that have travelled through the air into that person ears.

What is sound? I can find out if i touch my bicycle bell white it is ringing. I can find that the outside of the is moving quickly, or vibrating. The bell passes on these vibrations to the air as waves of the sound. In the air, the sound waves move out in all directions, rather like the ripples in a pond moving out after you have thrown in a stone.
The picture shows what the bell looks like inside. When you press the lever to ring the bell, the toothed gears make the middle part spin round. The little loose weights at the ends fly out and hit the bell, making it ring.
