Science for Students: What Makes a Good Insulator?
Energy will always be transferred from the object with a higher temperature to one with a lower temperature. In other words, heat will always flow from hot to cold. When we try to insulate something, we are trying to keep the energy from being transferred from a hotter object to a colder one. Good insulators prevent energy from easily being transferred from one object to another.
