BSL Physics Glossary - heat convection - definition

Translation: Hot air rises and cold air sinks down. We see this in the water cycle where water evaporates and rises in the hot air as steam, then condenses as it cools to change back to water and drop back down into the sea as rain. The sign for convection shows the heat rising and the cold air falling.
