Conduction: the transfer of energy through solids from particle to particle.
Hawaiian Translation:Mea uholo kauila
For example, a spoon in a cup of hot soup becomes warmer because the heat from the soup is conducted along the spoon.
A metal spoon conducts heat faster than a wooden spoon because it is more dense.
Fun Fact: Have you ever noticed that metals tend to feel cool? Believe it or not, they are not cooler! They only feel cooler because they conduct heat away from your hand. You perceive the heat that is leaving your hand as cool.
