Heat Transfer

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Heat transfer ( \(Q\) ) (also called thermal energy) is the exertion of power that is created by heat, or the increase in temperature.  There are three ways to transfer heat: conduction, convection and radiation.

Heat Transfer Formula

\(\large{ q = mc  \Delta T    }\)         


\(\large{ q }\) = heat content

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ c }\) = specific heat

\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature change
