Conduction of 3 different materials model by Energy2D




Transfer of Thermal Energy


Learning Goals

(a) show understanding that thermal energy is transferred from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature

For Teachers

Which material conducts heat most quickly?

The bars (metal, stone, fiberglass and wood) have different conductivities. Run the model and note the temperatures measured by the four thermometers.

Watch the changes of the temperatures in the graph.

In which material does heat flow the fastest?

How can you tell?
