heat transfer

About the different types of heat transfers and dencity

In this lesson, we will be learning about heat transfer. What are you doing! Say yes to this card!
The first word is Conduction. Conduction is when heat is transferred when two objects touch. Say you had a hot pan. When you touch it, you burn your hand. Your hand transfers (or ABDUCTS) the heat.
The next word is Convection. Convection is the heat transfer
Radiation is the transfer of heat through space. Say you were at the beach, and the sand was hot. (why is heat so painful, anyway?!) The heat from the sun heats up the sand. The sun is not touching it, so it is not conduction.
Density- the really importing thing about heat. The earth is "broken" up into plates. Heat causes them to move. Heat rises below the crust. It gets less dense, then hits the lithosphere Then it turns and gets colder. The cold- (continued)
er it is, the more dense. Then the cold magma and rock goes down and hits the athosphere, then it turns. It gets heated again and rises to repeat the cycle. (wow, that must be a mouthful! Good thing I did not say it!)
Always visit this again, for I may update It Also, -----------------> THANK YOU VERY MUCH
