# How Does Heat Move?

## Answer

Heat moves in one of several different ways. With radiation it can move in waves to reach it's destination. With conduction, heat directly touches matter and makes it's particles move and become heated as well. With convection the heat involves the use of air or water and gravity to heat items.

Heat can be moved in three different ways. They are, convection, radiation and conduction. In radiation, heat moves as energy waves. In convection, it has to have movement like gravity or water and in conduction the heat moves through the product being heated.
