Conduction of Heat

Meaning of Heat Conduction

Conduction of heat is the process by which heat is passed along a material from molecule to molecule while the heated particles remaining in mean position. Most metals are good conductors but their thermal conductivities differ from one metal to another. Experiment performed to compare the conductivity of solid showed that copper is a better conductor than brass, followed by iron, lead…


Using Kinetic Molecular Theory to Explain Conduction in Solids

When the end A is heated, molecule A vibrates about its mean position with a greater kinetic energy and pushes the molecule B to do the same.
