Not sure where to put this post, care more about whats happening on atomic scaI le so i put it here. I am currently taking Heat transfer for engineers and we were discussing the mechanicals for heat transfer, conduction, convection, raditation. In class my professor said that conduction is depend upon electrons/bond type with in the materials. Correct me if I am wrong, but neurton stars are giant nucli. So how would this effect heat transfer with in the star (beside raditation).
