1 3 Types of Heat Transfer

2 Heat Transfer- The movement of heat from a warmer object to a cooler object. The movement of heat from a warmer object to a cooler object.

3 1. Conduction Heat transfer by direct contact of molecules. Heat transfer by direct contact of molecules. In other words, when one molecule runs into another and it runs into another, etc. In other words, when one molecule runs into another and it runs into another, etc. It can occur in a solid, liquid or a gas. It can occur in a solid, liquid or a gas. Occurs best in a solid because the molecules are close together. Occurs best in a solid because the molecules are close together.

5 2. Convection Heat transfer by means of up and down movements called convection currents. Heat transfer by means of up and down movements called convection currents. Can occur only in a liquid or a gas Can occur only in a liquid or a gas

6 Convection currents Heated molecules do 2 things: Heated molecules do 2 things: 1. they expand (move apart), become less dense and then.. 1. they expand (move apart), become less dense and then.. 2. they rise. 2. they rise. Cooled molecules do the exact opposite: 1. they contract (get closer), become more dense and then… 1. they contract (get closer), become more dense and then… 2. they sink 2. they sink That is what makes a hot air balloon rise.

7 3. Radiation Heat transfer through open space. Heat transfer through open space. Occurs in a gas only. Occurs in a gas only.
