Storyboard Text

  • When something hot touches something cold, like this water bottle and my scrape, my skin transfers heat to the water bottle!
  • I'm pretty sure that's called convection!
  • So that's why I come out of the shower feeling warmer than when I first got in!
  • Conduction happens in the shower too! The hot water touches my skin and makes me warm!
  • Woah! That's cool!
  • Radiation comes from the sun! Thats why it's hot almost everyday here in Los Angeles!
  • Conduction is when something hot touches something cool and heat transfers from the hot object to the cool object and keeps going until the 2 objects are the same temperature.
  • We should probably put on some sunscreen.
  • Conduction happens in places all around you and you don't even know it!
  • Radiation is a lot like convection, but from the sun! The sun transfers heat to the Earth!
  • The sun is why you get tan! Or burnt 😳.
  • Yea. I agree.
  • Convection is what causes colder, less dense air to rise, and warmer, more dense air to sink.
  • Convection currents carry the warmer air to the bottom, and carry colder air to the top.
