Heat transmission has many ways to heat up whatever it touches and sometimes even cause things to burn and catch on fire.
Heat travels through a house fire by more than one method and those methods are transmission of heat by conduction, transmission of heat by radiation, and transmission of heat by convection.
Transmission of heat by conduction can be caused by a body coming in contact with another body making the transmission of heat between the two bodies to become very hot.
Things such as copper, iron, and aluminum are very good at transmitting heat by conduction and materials like paper, cloth, and felt are considered as poor transmission of heat by conduction.
Transmission of heat by radiation is felt every day as the sun rises and its rays warm the earth by the radiation of heat waves.
Heat and light waves are very similar, but heat waves are longer than light waves and they are also called infrared rays.
Transmission of heat by convection is when liquids and gases become heated and begin to move creating a molecular motion causing the transmission of heat by convection from one object to another.
Transmission of heat by direct contact is when burning vapors and fire come in contact with another object causing that object to ignite and burn.
Heat transmission has many good effects like warming your home on a cold winter night and heat transmission can also have bad effects like causing your home to catch on fire and become destroyed by flames.
