Heat Transfer

Conduction, Convection, Radiation

Conduction

Heat can be transferred by conduction. When an object is heated, the particles in the object begin to vibrate. These vibrations are passed on through the object, transferring the heat from one end to the other.

Radiation

Radiation is the transfer of heat from one place to another using invisible waves. All objects give out heat via radiation but hot objects radiate more heat than cool objects. DarK objects radiate more heat than light objects.

Convection

Heat can be transferred from one place to another via convection. In convection hotter particles rise and cool particles fall circulating heat.
