Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Pet on Sunday, April 1, 2007 at 10:50am.

How is it possible for a fabric (textile) to conduct the 3 modes of heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation?)

i've been searching for a possible experiment to investigate this but no luck

Anything with a higher temperature than its surroundings can move that energy via any method. Conduction and convection heat transfer depend on physical transfer at the molecular level (collisions) to move the energy, whilst radiation moves energy by the thermal energy of electrons (moving charges) from differing energy levels in the atom, radiated energy being the result.
