Consider the Diagram below: 3 Example of Heat Transfer: Boiling Pot of Water Mech 466, N. Dechev, UVic Conduction in Pot from Bottom Edge to Top Edge 1 Convection from Solid Pot into Liquid 2 Convection from Liquid to Air 3 Convection from Solid Pot to Air 4 Radiation 5 4 The “driving force” for heat flow is temperature difference - i.e. Heat will only flow from one point to another if there is a temperature difference between these two points. - Heat will only flow from High Temp ---> Low Temp. A useful analogy between heat (thermal) and current (electrical) is: Mech 466, N.
