What is Heat Transfer?
Activity #1: Radiation
- How does your body feel when you are standing in the shade? Why?
- What do you feel when you move and stand in a sunny area? Why?
- How would you define "heat transfer by radiation?"
Activity #2: Conduction
- How cool or warm does your palm feel when you touch your cheek?
- How does your palm feel as you leave it on a warm surface?
- When you touch your warmed palm to your cheek, is it similar or different
from the first time?
- What do you think happened when you let your palm rest on a warm surface?
- How would you define "heat transfer by conduction?"
Activity #3: Convection
- What happens when you hold your paper spiral up away from the heat source?
- When you held your paper spiral over the heat source, what did you see
- What do you think happened to that paper spiral as it got warmed up from
the heat source?
- How would you define "heat transfer by convection?"
