AN INTRODUCTION TO HEAT TRANSFER AND ENERGY Gain an understanding of heat and heat transfer through this series of hands-on activities. Measure thermal conductivity and thermal expansion of various metals; explore the methods of heat transfer including conduction, convection and radiation; and determine the specific heat of various substances. Using the included calorimeter, students will determine the heat of fusion of ice. Your class will also observe a demonstration of heat transfer using a radiometer and investigate heat and phase changes of matter. They'll apply this knowledge to identify substances that conduct heat effectively, known as conductors, and those that do not, termed insulators. They will use their experiences to relate these characteristics to differences between heat and temperature.
