Heat transfer is thermal energy transfer that is induced by a temperature difference (or gradient) Modes of heat transfer Conduction heat transfer: Occurs when a temperature gradient exists through a solid or a stationary fluid (liquid or gas). Convection heat transfer: Occurs within a moving fluid, or between a solid surface and a moving fluid, when they are at different temperatures Thermal radiation: Heat transfer between two surfaces (that are not in contact), often in the absence of an intervening medium.
