Describe how heat can be transferred through matter by the collision of atoms.
|Temperature||A measure of how hot or (or cold) something is; specifically, a measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles of an object|
|Conduction||The transfer of heat by direct contact of particles|
|Convection||The transfer of thermal energy by the circulation of movement of a liquid or a gas|
|Radiation||The transfer of energy as electromagnetic waves|
