A traditional conduction oven has a heat source at the bottom and bakes from the bottom up. Whereas convection has a fan blower that circulates the heat all around the food cooking much more evenly and faster.

Three main ways of transferring heat what are they?
How is thermal energy in earths atmosphere transfered by conduction?
The main method of thermal transference in the atmosphere is convection, conduction would only account for a fraction. Conduction works via hotter molecules transferring their energy to cooler molecules via the friction of collisions between molecules. As air has a very low molecular density conduction is poor therefore most atmospheric models will ignore it.
