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
\(q = mc \Delta T \) \( heat \; content \;=\; mass \;\;x\;\; specific \; heat \;\;x\;\; change \; in \; temperature \)
\(q\) = heat content
\(m\) = mass
\(c\) = specific heat
\(\Delta T\) = change in temperature
