Heat Transfer By Conduction

Our virtual lab will show us how heat is transferred through various materials. During class you will:

  • Observe and measure the transfer of heat from one container to another via a thermal conductor.
  • Interpret a graph of heat transfer.
  • Find the relationship between the rate of temperature change and the temperature difference between the two containers.
  • Compare the rate of heat transfer for different materials.
  • Classify materials as thermal conductors or thermal insulators.

Vocabulary: conduction, convection, insulate, radiation, thermal conductor, thermal energy, thermal insulator
