Conduction

HideShow resource information
  • In metals the atoms are extremely neat- reason for good conduction
  • They contain electrons that are not attacted to the atoms and are free to move
  • This is ONLY in metals (generally)
  • They contribute to heat being transferred
  • When heating an atom the atoms begins to vibrate and bump into its neighbour after getting enough energy this atom begins to vibrate and bump into its neighbour and so on and so forth
  • They pass
