The Three Processes of Heat
Flow :
Conduction
Convection
Radiation
Conduction

Conduction is a way
of transferring heat
through the contact
of objects.
Conductors of Heat
Examples:
Insulators of Heat
Examples:
Convection In Liquid
Convection is heat transfer through
a fluid with the hotter molecules
rising and the cooler ones sinking.
Convection in a Gas
Radiation
Radiation is heat transfer
through space.

The earth is heated by


radiation from the sun.
