video - Heat Conduction
Purpose:To show various aspects of heat transfer via thermally conducting and insulating materials.
Various items may be used to demonstrate a number of different principles involving heat transfer and conduction. The bunsen burner or torch may be used. There are pieces of insulation or gloves which can be used to protect the hand from a hot flame. There are solid metal bars and hollow metal tubes which can be heated. Very thin walled stainless steel tubing can be used to show that not all metal structures are excellent heat conductors. One end may be heated white hot while the other end is cool enough to hold in the hand.
