why conduction is only possible in solids?

Dear student,

Conduction can takes place in Solids,liquids and gases.
But it is maximum in solids as their atoms and molecules are located closer.
Metals are the best solids to conduct the heat as they have  tightly packed atoms which can pass the kinetic energy and the free electrons to the near by atoms and leads to conduction.
