Heat travels along a metal handle by means of conduction. The more heat there is in a material the faster the particles are moving. All materials conduct heat, even wood. Understanding conduction can help you slow down heat loss from your home and save you money and also keep you more comfortable.
The activities below help illustrate the concept of conduction:
* Chemical Reactions in Construction Activity
* Everyday Heat Transfer Activity
* Heat Resistant Glass Activity
* Speed Melting Activity
* Wall R Activity
