Ice Melting Blocks


 Model Description This demonstration illustrates the material property of thermal conductivity, and how this property affects conduction heat transfer in a solid.  Concepts include Fourier’s Law, conservation of energy and solid-liquid phase change.  This demonstration should take 8-10 minutes. Engineering Principle Fourier’s Law states that the heat transfer rate in a solid is proportional to […]
