About Convection

What we know about convection is that the air in the balloon is heated and becomes warmer that the surrounding of the air would make the balloon ascend.If the temperature on the inside of the balloon it decreases then the balloon starts to descend.Convection is the transfer as its heated through the movement of a fluid. You might not think of air as a fluid but the molecules would make up air to easily pass through them.This kind of movement of molecules in more familiar fluids such as water.

More on convection.

Often, there are not visible differences in some liquids, that actually is a telltale sign of convection occurring. Convection drives the movement to tectonic plate.In conclusion now we know about four ways convection works.
