more ENERGY (i.e. when it is being __________).
Heating a non-metal
Heating a metal
Metals are _______ conductors than non-metals. This is
because the heat is carried by free ________ that can

Convection is all about when a gas or liquid
("fluid") moves and carries heat with it. When
the fluid is heated it ____________. This
means that it will become less __________
than the colder fluid around it. Because of
this the warmer fluid will try to "_______"
over the colder fluid, and this is why warm air
rises. This is called a convection
___________. This is how heat reaches us
from the ___________ in this room.
In CONDUCTION the heat was passed on
by VIBRATIONS in a SOLID
In CONVECTION the heat is passed on by
the FLUID expanding, rising and TAKING
THE HEAT with it
Words to use: expands, radiators, dense, heated, current, float…read more
