This week we’ll be learning about the 3 different processes of heat transfer: CONDUCTION, CONVECTION and RADIATION.  To help us, we’ll be talking soccer and basketball – watch this space!

Here are some videos to help demonstrate:  Bill Nye 1, Bill Nye 2, Bill Nye 3

You might want to try answer the questions on this worksheet courtesy of Mr Boulton while watching: Heat Transfer – Questions For Understanding

To find out whether you’ve really understood the applications of heat transfer, you will be given a challenge.  See the attachment to read more 🙂  Have fun!  Heat Transfer Patent office modified version

The powerpoint I used in class is here: Topic 03 – Thermal Physics  The text is a little advanced for G9, but the images are good.
