Good Conductors of Heat?

Answer

A good conductor of heat is a material that transfers heat energy from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature faster. Some material that make good conductors of heat include copper, gold and aluminium.

Metals are good conductors of heat. The best conductors of heat include silver, gold, copper, aluminium and iron. Conduction is the process of heat transfer that occurs in solids. Carbon is the only non-metal known to conduct heat as well as a metal.
Good conductors of heat are the ones that offer minimum resistance to heat. Examples include: copper, aluminium and tungsten. Materials of high thermal conductivity transfer more heat than the low thermal conductivity materials.
There are several good conductors of heat such as iron, aluminum, copper, wax, water, brass, silver, gold, metal, steel, nickel, platinum, tin, and many more.
