1 Heat Transfer Hayley Vatcher Anna Reh-Gingerich Murray Middle, 7th Objective: Students should be able to: Define and describe conduction Define and describe convection List some good conductors, and poor conductors Apply the concept of convection currents to a global scale with heat transfer in the oceans and how it drives weather and climate Curriculum Category: Conduction/Convection, 7th grade Physics Materials: Blue & Red food coloring 3 cups per group Water Ice cubes for cold water source Heating element for hot water source Droppers Procedure: Start by prepping hot and ice cold water in an area out of the way. Use a glass container for the water, and have it on a heating element (hot plates are usually best). The other container will have ice in it. Make sure to refresh ice as needed to keep the water as cold as possible. Put plenty of blue food coloring in the ice cold water, and plenty of red food coloring in the hot water. Introduction to heat transfer Start with the concept of conduction and how molecules transfer heat by shaking rapidly Ask students which is hotter to the touch between a metal poker and a wooden stick that have had one end sitting in a fireplace. Discuss how there are good conductors and poor conductors. Ask students to give some examples. Poor conductors are often known as insulators since they help prevent heat loss. Go through some examples of conduction in real-life, such as frying bacon in a pan

3 and air are poor conductors and can be referred to as insulators. This is why rubber can often be used to cover electrical wiring for power cords. Another example of heat transfer is convection. Convection is different from conduction in that the material itself moves to transfer the heat within itself. Therefore, convection is only possible in liquids and gases. The other requirement for convection is that differential heating is involved, meaning that one part of the material is heated or cooled more than another part. When a gas or liquid is warmed, it becomes less dense and will rise above the cooler, denser parts of the substance. Heat is released at the surface and as surface substance cools down, it will start to sink again to be heated from the bottom and the cycle continues. This can be applied on a large scale to the ocean systems. The equator is the part of the earth closest to the sun. The direct sunlight warms the water substantially, creating a layer of lighter, warmer water. The warmer water then flows away from the Equators towards the poles. Once the water nears the poles and starts to encounter large sheets of ice and icebergs, it starts to cool down and become more dense. It then sinks below the layer of lighter water and moves towards the equator. On the map provided, it is possible to point out large-scale and smaller-scale currents. Convection is largely responsible for major currents and drives climate and weather globally. It is known as the global conveyor belt. Supplemental Materials:
