Conduction
Vibrating particles pass on their extra kinetic energy to neighbouring particles.
1 of 5
Convection
When the more energetic particles move from the hotter region to the cooler region and take their energy with them.
2 of 5
Radiation
All objects are continually emitting and absrbing radiation. An object that is hotter than its surroundings emits more radiation than it absorbs and an object that is cooler than its surrounding absorbs more radiation than it emits.
3 of 5
Refraction
When light changes speed as it passes from one medium to another.
4 of 5
3 points about a gamma particle...
Deeply penetrating, weakly ionising, short half-life.
