Explain how trapped air helps in insulation.

The answer for the question how can air act as an insulator is that air is a collection of gases and is a bad conductor of heat. Air can be trasferred through convection. Therefore, it can be said that heat can be distributed by air.

Examples of air insulation are air cavities in cooking utensils, gaps in the foam insulation, and air gaps in the walls.
