Conduction is heat transfer across a stationary medium, either solid or fluid. For an electrically nonconducting solid, conduction is attributed to atomic activity in the form of lattice vibration, while the mechanism of conduction in an electrically-conducting solid is a combination of lattice vibration and translational motion of electrons. Heat conduction in a liquid or gas is due to the random motion and interaction of the molecules. For most engineering problems, it is impractical and unnecessary to track the motion of individual molecules and electrons, which may instead be described using the macroscopic averaged temperature.
