This Friday we did three experiments in one day in order to examine properties of radiation, convection, and conduction - the three types of heat transfer.
First, we looked at radiation. We asked: do different colours absorb heat radiation differently? Here's what the experiment looked like.
Second, we asked: can we see convection in action? Here's a video that I took before we did it as a class.
Finally, we asked: do some materials conduct hear better than others? Here is a YouTube video on the experiment that we did.
