If I Had 2 Masses Of Equivelent Density But 1 Is Hotter What Would Happen? Would It Convect?
in a confined space, say a ball,if i had 2 masses of equivalent density but 1 is hotter what would happen? would it convect even though the density is the same, or will the energy disperse through all of it?

i know what conduction and convection is, and i'm not talking about the container for the 2 substances i'm talking about the 2 substances themselves. under normal circumstances less dense, normally hotter substances would spred out making it a less dense volume, witch would cause convection if the other substances are the same(from the original) but not heated. However unlike in nature, my question in in a confined space and both have an equivalent density and the same substance at the start. in my question i already compensated more density for the extra heat, would the molecules just spred out evenly and disperse there energy(via conduction) throughout the rest of the area. or what would happen. also the reason why i sead a ball is because i wanted as an equivalent stage as possible, the shape mostly doesn't mater as long as 1 halve is mirrored onto the other.
