# In a Room Containing Air, Heat Can Go from One Place to Another - Physics

ConceptHeat Transfer Conduction

#### Question

In a room containing air, heat can go from one place to another

• by conduction only

• by convection only

• by all the three modes

#### Solution

by all the three modes

In conduction, heat is transferred from one place to other by vibration of the molecules. In this process, the average position of a molecule does not change. Hence, there is no mass movement of matter.
In convection, heat is transferred from one place to other by actual motion of particles of the medium. When water is heated, hot water moves upwards and cool water moves downwards.
In radiation process, transfer of heat does not require any material medium.
For a room containing air, heat can be transferred via radiation (no medium required) and convection (by the movement of air molecules) and by conduction (due to collision of hot air molecules with other molecules).

Is there an error in this question or solution?
