The transfer of heat through direct contact is called conduction.

it's sort of like diffusion, the object with the higher temperature will transfer its energy through conduction to the cooler object. after long enough, they will have the same temperature.

Different densities are affected by gravity with the transfer of heat. An increase in temperature will cause a reduction in density.

Yes, it is called transfer by conduction.Transfer by radiation requires no contact and transfer by convection requires contact through an intermediate moving fluid.

conduction: when the two objects are in contact and there is temperature difference between them. convection : when there is no contact and still the heat is transferred in the form of heat waves through a intermediate medium

The rate of transfer of thermal energy through a material is called its thermal conductivity, and it's different for different materials. However, that measures heat transfer, and heat and temperature are related but distinct concepts. Basically: there is no answer to the question, because scientifically there is no such thing as the "speed" of a temperature.

We apply the term conduction to the transfer of thermal energy through direct contact. The other two mechanisms that transfer thermal energy are radiation and convection.

The energy (heat in this case) starts to make an equilibrium by taking heat from the hot object and giving it to the cooler object. This is called conduction, or heat transfer through touch.

It's called a direct transfer transmission. It involves contact of an infected person with a susceptible person and the physical transfer of organisms.

It's a different way to transfer heat. One object emits electromagnetic radiation (for example, infrared - though it depends on the temperature); another object absorbs it. Heat transfer through radiation can occur in empty space; with conduction and convection, that's not possible.

Heat can be transferred in 3 ways: Conduction, or through direct contact, Convection, or transfer of heat through a fluid, or Radiation, or heat transfer through space in the form of electromagnetic waves.

convection is heat transfer through non-contact. radiation is heat transfer through space. like the sun.

Conduction is the transfer of heat throgh solid objects in direct contact. The other two types of heat transfer are convection (through liquids and gases) and radiation (through gases and a vacuum).

It's false because the transfer of energy through matter by direct contact of its particles is conduction.Have a nice day :)

Through temperature transfer, wind, exchange of gasses.

There are three methods by which substances absorb heat. These are conduction, or heat transfer through contact, convection, or heat transfer through fluid motion, and radiation, or heat transfer through electromagnetic radiation.

Conduction. Convection is through some fluid medium and radiation is through a vacuum.

Conduction is the transfer of heat through direct contact.

When the heat is transfered through direct contact

Conduction is the heat transfer through contact. Convection is the heat transfer through fluids (gases, liquids). Radiation is the heat transfer through empty space.

Conduction is where heat energy pass though the molecules by direct contact

Radiation requires neither contact (through which conduction transfers heat) nor mass flow or movement (through which convection transfers heat). Only radiation can take place in a vacuum. Convection and conduction both require a material medium for the heat transfer to occur. Only radiation can transfer thermal energy through the vacuum of space.

A collision is the transfer of energy through direct contact. Though something hot sitting besides something cold is also transferring energy through direct contact.
