A material that speeds up heat transfer.
What are some examples of conductors?
Aluminum foil, metal, glass.
What is an insulator?
A material that slows down heat transfer.
What are some examples of insulators?
Wool, wood, coat.
How does heat always move? (see your science notebook for this)
It always moves from high temperature to low temperature.
Describe the heat transfer that occurs when you are holding a cup of hot chocolate to warm up your hands.
Conduction because the heat is transferring through direct contact
When an ice cube melts in your drink what is happening? Is the cold moving from the ice to the drink? Or is the heat from the drink moving into the ice cube?
The heat from the water is moving into the ice.
