Thermos flask

Thermos flask is a special type of vessel which keeps hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold. It is made in such a way as to reduce the loss of heat by conduction, convection and radiation to minimum. It is a double walled glass vessel. The space between the two walls has no air in it. It is a vacuum indeed. The inside of the outer wall and outside of the inner wall are brightly polished with silver. The whole system is enclosed in a metal case. It is supported on corks or rubber pieces on all sides. The mouth too is closed with a cork.

How it Works

The vacuum between the walls prevents the flow of heat of conduction and convection. As for radiation, the brightly polished outer surface of the inner wall is a slow radiator of heat. The little heat that radiates is reflected back by the inner brighter surface of the outer wall. So, the hot liquid remains hot for a long time in the flask.

What is thermometer?

The device which measures the degree of hotness is called thermometer.

Which type of surfaces are good absorbers of heat?

Black and rough surfaces are good absorbers of heat.

Which type of surfaces are poor absorbers of heat?

White and smooth surfaces are poor absorbers of heat.

Which scale is used for measuring heat in scientific work?

Temperature is generally measured in Celsius or Fahrenheit scale. Kelvin scale is used for scientific work.
