Metals are used for various technical functions. One function is the transport of heat.
Different metals have different thermal conductivities. The students should think about:
• In which metal technical devices is heat conduction important?
• Why do houses with a tin roof get hotter than houses with a tile roof?
• Why do frying pans often have wooden or plastic handles?
