The transmission or conveying of something through a medium or passage, especially the transmission of electric charge or heat through a conducting medium without perceptible motion of the medium itself.
the loss of heat or, more viscerally, the rise of feeling cold through direct contact with a cold surface. Clothing that doesn't dry and then becomes cold can create dire circumstances, literally drawing heat from your body. Understanding conduction is understanding the need to layer properly.
the act of energy from heated particles moving from an area of high temperature to an area of cooler temperature. This happens by the transfer of energy between the particles that make up those materials
the transfer of heat from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature by increased kinetic energy. This increased kinetic energy is passed from molecule to molecule. Conductors are materials that heat can pass through. Not all materials are good conductors.
The ability of electrons to flow through a conductor. It is the reciprocal of resistance. Conduction is also a heat transfer mechanism in solid materials, involving transfer of kinetic energy within its molecular structure.
Electrical conduction occurs when electrons flow through a material as a result of a potential difference. Heat conduction is one way in which heat can be transferred. Conduction occurs because vibrating atoms or free electrons in the material pass on their energy to their neighbours. Resistance, Conduction
the transfer of heat through solid objects such as glass, dry wall, brick and other building materials. The greater the difference between the outdoor and indoor temperatures, the faster conduction can occur and the more home a building can gain or lose.
The molecule-to-molecule transfer of kinetic energy (one molecule becomes energized and, in turn, energizes adjacent molecules). A cast-iron skillet handle heats up because of conduction through the metal.
The flow of heat from one part of a substance to another part. A piece of iron with one end placed in a fire will soon become warm from end to end due to the transfer of heat by the actual collision of the air molecules.
Conduction is the direct flow of heat through a material resulting from physical contact. The transfer of heat by conduction is caused by molecular motion in which molecules transfer their energy to adjoining molecules and increase their temperature.
Refers to heat flow through a solid material such as a window frame or glass. In the winter, the interior surface of a window is warmed by the home's heating system, and that heat is conducted (or transferred) to the cooler outdoors.
It is the transfer of heat energy from one region to another region through a substance with out the movement of the substance as a whole is known as conduction. It is the transfer of heat from particle to particle in a substance. Some materials are good conductor and some are bad conductor of heat.
the transfer of heat as a result of the direct contact of rapidly moving molecules through a medium or from one medium to another, without movement of the media. The heat from geothermal water, for instance can be conducted through metal plates or pipes to heat other water for district heating systems or a second organic liquid for use in binary power plants.
The transfer of heat between materials that contact each other. Heat passes from the warmer material to the cooler material. For example, a worker's skin can transfer heat to a contacting surface if that surface is cooler, and vice versa.
The transfer of energy through a solid without motion of the conducting solid as a whole. Conduction Band The energy band above the energy gap in a semiconductor. Electrons with enough energy to reach the conduction band can freely move within the semiconductor in response to externally applied potential gradients.
Heat transfer through the movement of atoms within a substance. The transfer of heat from one body to another by direct contact (electric stove electrode to the utensil), within the same body (metal bar heated at one end), or through another heat-conducting medium (double boiler).
Transport of energy (charge) solely as a consequence of random motions of individual molecules ( ions, electrons) not moving together in coherent groups. Conduction of energy is a consequence of temperature gradients; conduction of charge (electrical conduction) is a consequence of electric potential gradients. Conduction is distinguished from convection in which energy (or charge) is transported by molecules (ions, electrons) moving together in coherent groups.
