Thermographers must have a solid understanding of how heat is transferred. ÄT = temperature difference between two systems. These waves have different wave lengths depending on the temperature of the heat source. This is the primary method of heat transfer in solids and it works best of all in metals (because loosely bound electrons play a role). Students know heat flows in solids by conduction (which involves no flow of matter) and in fluids by convection (which involves flow of matter). There are three main forms of heat transfer which are commonly referred to within the process engineering industry: Conduction. Thermal conductivity is a property derived in cases where conduction mode of heat transfer is studied and conduction of heat occurs through non flow motion of molecules example as solids where the molecules are not free to move. Convection and conduction are different because conduction transfers heat energy through direct contact in solids. It is also an efficient method of conduction in liquids, but occurs hardly at all in gases. Any radiation which is absorbed turns into heat. This is why some substances are used as insulators while others are used in applications such as cooking. We'll also introduce radiation, gravity and heat conduction in solids. An object with low conductivity will transfer heat slower than an object with high conductivity. We don't necessarily need to take a college level course, but a practical understanding and being well-grounded in physics is essential. All conduction needs molecules so that the energy can be passes along.
