Chemistry Heat Part 10 (Conduction) Class 7 VII

TL;DR

Conduction is the transfer of heat between different parts of a body due to a temperature difference, and it is the most important mode of heat transfer in solids.

Questions & Answers

Q: What is conduction?

Conduction is the transfer of heat between different parts of a body within the same object due to a temperature difference.

Q: In which materials does conduction occur?

Conduction mainly occurs in solids, particularly those that are good conductors of heat. Insulators, like plastic, do not conduct heat through conduction.

Q: What is thermal conductivity?

Thermal conductivity refers to the ability of a material to conduct heat. Solids have higher thermal conductivity compared to liquids and gases.

Q: Why do houses with concrete roofs get hot in summer?

Concrete has moderate thermal conductivity, which allows it to conduct heat relatively well. This is why houses with concrete roofs heat up in summer.

Q: How can the heat transfer in houses with concrete roofs be reduced?

Adding a layer of earth or foam insulation on the ceiling of houses with concrete roofs can help prohibit heat transfer and keep the rooms cooler.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Conduction is the process by which heat is transferred within a solid object, from hotter regions to colder ones, due to a temperature difference.

  • Solids are the best conductors of heat, and the thermal conductivity of an object determines how much heat it can conduct.

  • Houses with concrete roofs get very hot in summer because concrete has a significant thermal conductivity, but insulating layers can help reduce the heat transfer.
