Heat Transfer – Conduction, Convection, and Radiation

Today are reviewing some of the concepts we studied in previous labs including conduction, convection, and radiation. Students are about to design their own experiment showing the transfer of heat

Here is a video illustrating the concepts of the transfer of heat through conduction, convection, and radiation.

Here is an additional suplimentary video if you still want some more ideas and learning for this concept.


Today students will be working on a design project demonstrating one form of heat transfer. Students may choose either of conduction, convection, or radiation to represent in a presentation to the class period.  Their presentation may either be live with active materials, or be a prerecorded video. This presentation will be happening next week and is due no later than 9:00 AM on Tuesday. Students must have all materials ready including any materials they need for a live demonstration or prerecorded video pre set up ready to present.

Students have a choice whether they are showing conduction, convection, or radiation, however, no more then eight students may show anyone concept. As soon as a student has a design project ready they are to go to their teacher, sign up for their project, and then begin their design project. once there are eight students for any single form of heat transfer no more students may present on that topic.

To be clear: each student is responsible for a demonstration that will take no longer than five minutes presenting either convection, conduction, or radiation of heat. Each student is responsible for demonstrating this transfer of heat in a safe manner. The student may either do a live presentation that has been pre approved by Mr. Ewert for safety, or, have a prerecorded video that they are able to present live and narrate within the class.  Students are to use the template provided to design their project. Although not all of the boxes must be filled the majority must be used in preparation for the design project. The student is to make their own informed decision as to which parts they require for their design project.

Here is the template provided in class for planning your project.21.11.15 design project
