UNIT-1
Three modes of heat transfer
Conduction
Convection
Radiation

Conduction
Why does metal feel colder than wood, if they
are both at the same temperature?

Convection
Why is it windy at the seaside?

Why is the freezer compartment put at the top in a fridge?


Freezer

Radiation
How does heat energy get from the Sun to the Earth?
There are no particles between
the Sun and the Earth so it
CANNOT travel by conduction or
by convection.
