CONDUCTION

Conduction was my favorite topic because it occurs everyday without even knowing. Also, you can go into so much depth in formation because there's so many different types of conduction. Finally,I enjoyed learning about the different types of conductors and insulators and what their funtion is.

Do you ever notice that metal is always cold? Well, they actually aren't colder! Metal seems colder because they conduct heat away from your hand. But really; the heat that is leaving your hand as cold

Conceptual Physical Science-Explorations(book)

Conduction is heat transfer. It occurs by means of particles in a material, mostly electrons.Something that permits the flow of heat is called a conductor. We would say that metal is a conductor because heat can travel easily throughout. Some thing that is a poor conductor of heat is called a insilater. A poor insalator is wood, because heat cant flow easily

GOOD CONDUCTOR

POOR CONDUCTOR(INSULATER)

When we touch an all metal pan from a heated stove, our hand gets warm and starts to burn, the reason for that is conduction, and metal is a good conductor of heat, it allows heat to flow easily from the stove then to our hand. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/science/materials/heat/read/3/)

This picture is a bit different, because there is wood on the handle. Instead of us touching a metal handle and getting burnt, a wooden handle was added to stop the transfer of heat from the stove to your hand. The heat particles can't move easily in wood.
