Why would a cup of hot tea with a metal spoon in itcool down faster that a cup of hot tea without a metal spoon?
Yes it would, the metal conducts the heat quickly
Place a wooden spoon and a metal spoon in the freezer. Which will cool faster After several hours what would they feel like?
the spoon is metal and metal conducts heat , if you put a metal spoon in a drink the drink will retain the heat but if you take it out it's like your taking a whole lot of heat, in other words a metal spoon is like a magnet of heat it you remove the spoon it will remove heat but if you keep it in the heat will stay. shoraye khatter.
Think of a metal spoon in a pot of hot water. How do the particles of the water affect the particles of the spoon?
Conduction is what transfers the heat in this process. The fast moving particles in the hot electric coil collide with the slow-moving particles in the cool pot. The transfer of the heat causes the pot's particles to move faster. Then the pot's particles collide with the water's particles, which in turn collide with the particles of the spoon. As the particles move faster, the metal spoon becomes hotter.
