Why does butter help un-stick food from a frying pan?

its because butter is oily and oil is slippery. The oil from the butter goes on the frying pan and it makes the pan slippery so nothing sticks.

Butter contains moisture, the moisture helps dissolve the stuck on portion of food, (sugars usually), water works better at removing burnt on foods, but butter generally won't alter food you intend to eat afterwards.

How does heat travels to the fire to the frying pan to the cooking oil to the fish being cooked?

The fire actually creates the heat not the other way around. Anyhow the radiant heat from the flame warms the frying pan through a process known as conduction. Through the process of convection the oil is heated and finally the fish is cooked by the latent heat of the oil.

What foods are cook with frying pans?

Frying pans are best used for foods that need fast cooking at a high heat, either dry or with oil. As the name suggests, frying pans are designed for "pan frying," which means that food is cooked in a shallow (up to one inch) of very hot melted fat or oil. Tender cuts of meat such as steak and burgers can be successfully fried, as well as eggs, fish, chicken pieces and many types of sturdy vegetables such as onions, potatoes, squash, okra and so on. Frying pans can and are used for other types of cooking, both on the stove top and in the oven. Cornbread is one example of food that is often baked in a frying pan.

What is deglazing a frying pan?

Deglazing is a cooking technique for removing and dissolving browned food residue from a pan to flavor sauces, soups, and gravies.

When a piece of meat is roasted, pan fried or prepared in a pan with another form of dry heat, a deposit of browned sugars, carbohydrates, and/or proteins forms on the bottom of the pan, along with any rendered fat. The French culinary term for these deposits is sucs.

The meat is removed and the majority of the fat is poured off, leaving a small amount with the dried and browned meat juices. The pan is returned to the heat, and a liquid such as vegetable or meat stock, a spirit, some wine, or verjuice is added to act as a solvent. This allows the cook to scrape the dark spots from the bottom of the pan and dissolve them, incorporating the remaining browned material at the bottom of the pan into a basic sauce.[2]The culinary term fond, French for "base" or "foundation", refers to this sauce, although it is also sometimes used to describe the browned food bits instead (commonly in the United States).

The flavour is determined chiefly by the meat, the liquid used for deglazing, and any flavouring or finishing ingredients added, such as aromatics, herbs, or butter.

This method is the cornerstone of many well known sauces and gravies. The resulting liquid can be seasoned and served on its own (sometimes called a jus), or with the addition of aromatic vegetables, such as onions orshallots, carrots and celery, or used as the base for a soup. The sauce can also be thickened by whisking in butter, through the addition of a starch, such as flour, cornstarch, or arrowroot, or simply simmered down with a steady heat to form a rich, concentrated reduction.
