  • Conduction
    • Only occurs in solids because particles are held together tightly
    • When a solid object is heated, the particles vibrate
      • They pass on their extra kinetic energy to neighboring particles
        • Which makes them vibrate
          • At the end of this process, the solid is the same temperature throughout the object
    • The  heat flow goes from hot to cold
    • Conduction occurs better in metals than non-metals.
      • This is because of the heat that is carried by free electrons that can carry the energy around the metal and give it to other electrons and ions




Helped a lot thnx :D



lots of organisational work there....

I LIKE THAT!!!!!!!
