How heat moves Convection: heat is transported by the motion of currents. Heat itself causes the fluid motion (via expansion and buoyancy force AKA changes in density). Conduction: is the transfer of thermal energy between neighboring molecules in a substance from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature. Radiation: describes any process in which energy emitted by one body travels through a medium or through space, ultimately to be absorbed by another body.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
