Heat Conduction, Convection, Radiation


Conduction is the transfer of heat energy through matter from item to item


Heat energy is transferred from a hot place to cooler places by convection. It moves in a circular pattern heat expands and then rises away from a heat source, cools down, and then continues the circular pattern. As it rises, the air or liquid becomes less dense, and then falls and becomes more dense as it returns to the heat source.


Radiation involves the transfer of heat by radiation. This is a type of electromagnetic radiation and involves wave, and transports energy through space. The hotter an object is the more infrared radiation it emits or radiates no particles are involved in radiation unlike conduction and convection.
