1 Additional Answer
Heat travels in various ways, but out of these there are three that are the most distinctive. There is conduction of heat through solids, convection in fluids or gases, and radiation through any material that will allow the radiation to pass through it. Heat will always travel from a higher temperature to a lower one through whatever method is the most efficient.
