Types of Heat Loss
EvaporationThis image shows how heat loss occurs through evaporation (body heat evaporating sweat and cooling off the body).
RadiationThis image shows how heat is lost through radiation (heat moving away from the body in colder temperatures).
Convection and ConductionThis image shows how heat is lost through convection (heat loss through air and water moving across the skin) and conduction (heat loss through direct contact with an object).
