convection vs conduction

First the scientific explanation. As temperature goes up, the molecules increase in thermal agitation manifested in linear motion and vibration. Regions that contain higher kinetic energy transfer the energy to regions with lower kinetic energy. Simply put, heat transfer can be grouped into three broad categories:¬†conduction,¬†convection, and radiation. Now that…

vaporizing

A vaporizer is a device used to heat material to a temperature which releases its volatile ingredients as a vapor into the air.¬† The advantage of vaporizing over combustion is that no smoke is produced, and the vapor generated should not contain as many toxic particles such as tar, naftalene,…
