Heat is the energy transferred between two things due to differences in temperature between them.Temperature is the degree of hotness or coldness of an object.Heat flows from a region of high temperature to that of low temperature.There are 3 methods of heat transfer namely conduction,convection,and radiation.

1. Conduction-This is the movement of heat in particles of solids.Conductors allow heat to pass through them.Examples are iron,steel,copper,zinc

2. Convection -This is the transfer of heat in liquid and gas

3. Radiation-This is the transfer of heat among materials through space.

Absorption of heat-As heat reaches an object,it may be reflected,absorbed,or allowed to pass through it.Polished or shiny surfaces reflect much heat while dull or dark coloured surfaces absorb much heat.
