No, I don't understand conduction, convention and radiation.
Come around with me today and I will explain the concepts to you.
I will never touch the iron part, don't want to get burned.
The handle is rubber because that is an insulator. This transfers heat at a slow rate so it won't burn my hand. The iron is metal because that is a good heat conductor. The iron will heat up and transfer heat quickly, so the shirt will iron quickly.
The heat transfer while you iron clothes is conduction. The solid particles in the iron are transferring their heat onto the shirt, allowing it to unrinkle. Conduction is the process of transferring heat through direct collisions between particles.
It sounds like a hot air balloon would be very fun.
This is convection because when the heater in the middle heats the air, it moves the balloon upwards. When the heat is released and cold air replaces it, the hot air balloon descends.
A hot air balloon is an example of convection. Convection is the transfer of heat energy in fluids. It happens by particles flowing in circle up, down and across.
The sun is making me feel so hot.
This leads me to the last heat transfer, radiation. Radiation is the transfer of heat in waves that does not involve particles. You are feeling very hot because the sun is radiating its energy and dark colours absorb that energy instead of reflecting it.
I did really well. Thanks for teaching me about the heat transfers!
