P1 - Conduction in the Home

HideShow resource information

What is conduction?

Conduction of heat is the process in which vibrating particles pass on extra kinetic energy to other particles.

When does conduction occur?

It happens mainly in solids because the particles are held tightly together, and the particles can pass on their energy through vibrating.

How does conduction work?

Particles with more energy pass on their extra energy to particles with less energy. These particles then have more energy, and can pass on their extra energy to the…
