Did you know? What three factors influence the speed of heat transfer between materials? 1. The temperature difference between materials. The greater the temperature difference, the faster the heat moves between them. 2. The surface area of the material. The larger the area, the greater its capacity to absorb heat. 3. Type of material. Insulating materials like wood or plastic transfer heat slowly, whereas copper or aluminum have properties that conduct heat rapidly.
