### B. Short/Long Answer Questions Heat ICSE Class-7th Concise

#### Question 1.

What is heat ? State its S.I. unit.
Heat is a form of energy which flows. It is the energy of motion of molecules constituting the body.
The unit of heat is same as that of energy, The S.I. unit of heat is joule (abbreviated as J) and other common units of heat are calorie and kilo calorie, where 1 kcal = 1000 cal.

#### Question 2.

What is meant by the term temperature.

Temperature is a quantity which tells the thermal state of a body (i.e. the degree of hotness or coldness). It determines the direction of flow of heat when the two bodies at different temperatures are placed in contact.

#### Question 3.

State the three units of temperature.
The S.I. unit of temperature is kelvin or K. The other most common unit of temperature is degree Celsius (°C) and degree Fahrenheit (°F).

#### Question 4.

Name the instrument used to measure the temperature of a body.
To measure the temperature of a body with the help of a thermometer.

#### Question 5.

Name two scales of temperature. How are they inter-related?
Two scales of temperature are
(i) Celsius (ii) Fahrenheit
Relation: #### Question 6.

How is the size of a degree defined on a Celsius scale ?
The interval between the ice point and steam point divided by 100 (hundred) equal parts is called a degree on the Celsius scale.

#### Question 7.

How is the size of a degree defined on a Fahrenheit scale?
The interval between the ice point and steam point divided into 180 equal parts is called a degree on the Fahrenheit scale.

#### Question 8.

State the temperature of (i) ice point and (ii) steam point, on the Celsius scale.
(i) Ice point. Is the the mark on Celsius scale at which ice melts. Ice point on the Celsius scale is 0°C.

(ii) Steam point. On the Celsius scale is the mark at which water changes into steam at normal atmospheric pressure. On Celsius scale it is 100°C.

#### Question 9.

Write down the temperature of (i) lower fixed point, and (ii) upper fixed point, on the Fahrenheit scale.
Lower fixed point: On the Falirenheit scale is the mark at which pure ice melts. It is 32°F on Fahrenheit scale.
Upper fixed point: On the Fahrenheit scale is the mark at which water starts changing into steam at normal atmospheric pressure. It is 212°F.

#### Question 10.

What is the Celsius scale of temperature ?
Celsius scale is that which has ice point as 0°C and steam point marked as 100°C.

#### Question 11.

What is the Fahrenheit scale of temperature ?
Fahrenheit scale is that which has ice point as 32°F and the steam point marked as 100°C.

#### Question 12.

What is the Kelvin scale of temperature ?
