Product Details

Decisively demonstrate heat conductivity in less than 30 seconds! Touch the identical-looking blocks. One feels cold to the touch, the other feels warm. Place an ice cube on each block and watch as one ice cube rapidly melts. Which block melts the ice cube-cold or warm? The result will be unexpected! Students will be amazed when they see the cold block melting the ice cube remarkably faster than the warm block. How is this possible? The cold block is a heat conductor-it easily transfers heat energy. The warm block is an insulator. An unmistakable discrepant event that is sure to clarify the difference between a heat conductor and a heat insulator. Instructions provided. Block dimensions: 10 cm x 10 cm.
