1302 Mechanisms of Heat Transfer - Insulation Energy Efficiency - The Basics -

Image Text: Conduction > heat transfer through a solid material > the direction of heat travel is always from hot to cold > solid masonry > outside (cold) > inside (warm) > heat > Radiation > heat transferred through invisible light waves e.g. thermal infrared energy (sunlight) > Convection > heat transfer within a gas or liquid > air above the pot warms up (becomes less dense) and rises - drawing more cool air in from the sides to be heated up
