Concept Cartoons: Change of State and Insulation
This concept cartoon explores student's ideas about heat and insulation. A common misconception is that some materials have the property of making things warm. In this case because we have put coats on to keep warm there is a tendency to believe that the coat will also make the snowman warm so that it will melt quickly. In fact the coat acts as an insulator, reducing the movement of energy in either direction.
Millgate House Publishers has donated this Concept Cartoon focusing on change of state and insulation.
