Heat! Conduction, convection and radiation


Transfer through direct contact of particles from item to item


Convection is a circular pattern of heat transfers, only with liquids and gases. Heat expands and then rises away from a heat source, cools down, and then continues the circular pattern.


Radiation is heat transfer through electromagnetic waves. You don't touch the heat directly, waves of heat travel through space or air or other fluids.
