Which Metals Conduct Heat best?
Introduction:
Although all metals are good heat conductors, they are not heat conductive at the same rate. Some metals are simply a better heat conductor than others. For safety and energy conservation reasons we may want to use metals that are not good heat conductors. On the other hand for efficient heat transfer from pipes and radiators to the air we may need metals that are very good heat conductors.
Knowing the heat conductivity of different metals can help us in selecting the right metal for different uses.  
 
Material and instructions:
In this project you will compare different metals to see which one is a better heat conductor. Materials and equipment needed for the experiments may be found at home or obtained locally.
