Describe how heat can be transferred through matter by the collision of atoms.
|temperature||a measure of how how hot (or cold) something is; specifcally, 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 a electromagnetic waves|
