  • Alright! we are ready to begin! Angela you may start!
  • Angela
  • Science Debate
  • which heat source is the most efficient?
  • Freddy
  • Angela
  • Can you please explain why?
  • Thank you! As we all know, convection is the most efficient heat source!
  • convection
  • Freddy
  • As you know, convection is the transfer of heat through fluids which are gases and liquids. They transfer through convection currents. First, the particles get heated and energized, then the hot air rises. After that, the air cools as it drifts away from the heat. After the cool air sinks, it gets pulled back towards the heat. The circles just keep going and going and the cycle repeats. Some examples are hot air balloons, boiling water and steam. This is why It is defiantly the most efficient heat source!
  • Freddy
  • That's great Angela but you aren't correct. Freddy, take it away!
  • Angela
  • Conduction
  • Freddy
  • Thank you! In my opinion, heat conduction is the most efficient heat source.
  • Angela
  • Why is that, Freddy?
  • You see, conduction is the heat transfer of heat through solids. What happens is when one particle is heated, is directly collides into the other neighboring particle. Conduction transfers through heat conductors such as metal, steel, and iron. Some heat insulators which are materials that prevent you from getting a burn are plastic, wood and rubber. Since conduction causes a chain reaction, I think it is the most efficient heat source.

  • Sorry guys! turns out you were both incorrect. Good explaining though! The correct answer is heat radiation. Radiant energy can transfer heat in any type of matter whether it's a solid, liquid or gas. They have nothing to do with particles and they transfer in inferred waves. Because of this, they are the fastest and most efficient heat source!
  • Oh well!
