The molecules of gas have a comparatively large space between them. Conduction occurs only in solids which have closely packed molecules whose motion is restricted to vibration in the same position within the solid mass. The addition of heat energy, due to this compactness, is translated to Kinetic Energy (greater vibrational motion) which is immediately transferred to neighbouring molecules and the Heat Transfer by Conduction is Achieved. Conduction is the fastest form of Heat transfer. Convection, heat transfer in fluids (Liquids and Gases) is due to rising currents of fluid due to decrease in Density.
What is the reason for this difference in melting points? (3 points) Ionic has higher because an ionic bond has a very strong electrostatic attraction which means It takes a large amount of heat to break it down. 1. Do ionic compounds conduct electricity as: (3 points) 1. Solids?

What size metal duct should be used to deliver 270 CFM with a pressure drop of 0.15 in wc if the total equivalent length is 80 ft?
So, it makes sense that the speed of sound has the same order of magnitude as the average molecular speed between collisions. In a gas, it is particularly important to know the temperature. This is because at lower temperatures, molecules collide more often, giving the sound wave more chances to move around rapidly. At freezing (0º Celcius), sound travels through air at 331 meters per second (about 740 mph). But, at 20ºC, room temperature, sound travels at 343 meters per second (767 mph).Liquids:Sound travels faster in liquids than in gases because molecules are more tightly packed.
P1 POSSIBLE 6 MARKS QUESTIONS 1. A vacuum flask is designed to reduce the rate of energy transfer by heating process. Describe how the design of a vacuum flask keeps the liquid inside hot? • The plastic cap of the vacuum flask is a good insulator, so it reduces the heat transfer by conduction. It stops convection currents formed at the top of the flask thereby stopping convection.
The plasma furnace is the central component of the system where gasification and vitrification takes place. Plasma torches are mounted at the bottom of the reactor, they provide high temperature air (i.e., almost three times higher than traditional combustion temperatures) which allow for the gasification of the waste materials. The gas produced in the furnace system is referred to as synthesis gas. This gas then enters the synthesis gas cleaning system. Gas cleaning refers to the process of removing acid gases, suspended particulates, heavy metals and moisture from the synthesis gas prior to entering the energy recovery system where power, steam and synthetic fuels can be obtained.
