Sitting underneath an outdoor electric heater (the kind you find outside of restaurants) my friend asked why we should feel the heat from a heater that's above us, when heat naturally rises in air. Shouldn't not the hot air that's been heated by the heater rise up, and thus not make us warm? Or is it something else which is making us warm instead? Can heat travel without the need for a medium such as air? Thanks! David Abouav
