I have an hot object, that is place in a room of 20°C. My goal is to be able to estimate how warm the object will be in T seconds. To be able to do that, I must first understand what is really happening; how the object is cooling down.
I am new to thermodynamics and I don't really understand with which Method the hot object will cool down. Is it conduction or convection?
Wiki: Conduction is the transfer of heat between substances that are in direct contact with each other. So in my case it should be the object and the ambiant air.
Wiki: Convection is the transfer of heat from one place to another by the movement of fluids. So in my case it should be the movement of the air
Both Method could happen in my case, that's why I am not sure which method is occuring here.
Is it possible for an object to cool down with 2 Methods simultaneously (radiation and convection for example)?
