INTRODUCTION Heat Transfer is the motion of the thermal energy. Heat can be transferred in three different ways: conduction, convection and radiation. In conduction heat is transferred from the region of high temperature to the region of low temperature with the kinetic motion or direct impact of molecules. This phenomenon is fundamentally a diffusion process that occurs at the microscopic level. The thermal conduction is investigated in this experiment. Thermal conduction is an energy transfer due to the temperature difference. The heat conduction equation is: This formula shows that the heat flux goes through the direction that is perpendicular to the temperature gradient and is proportional to the temperature gradient. THE THEORY
