OP32b compare insulating ability of different materials

Heat energy always moves until all the bodies are at the same temperature.

Conduction is how well a body can move heat,

Insulation is the opposite it is a measure of how hard it is for heat to move.

A Good Conductor is a Bad Insulator

& A Bad Conductor is a Good Insulator

insulation It includes a simple temperature worksheet,a basic method of how to carry out an isulation experiment

Take 4 different types of vessels, fill them with hot water from a recently boiled kettle, measure the temperature change over 30 minutes.

The one that keeps the temperature the hottest the longest is the best insulator of the 4, and the one with the lowest temperature is the best conductor

Make a list of

  1. Good Conductors
  2. Good Insulators
