heat conduction plain wallHeat Transfer by Conduction through a Plane Wall Formula

\(\large{ Q_c =  \frac {- k \; A_c \; \left(  T_2 \;-\; T_1  \right)  }   { l }   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ Q_c }\) = heat transfer by conduction

\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section

\(\large{ T_1 }\) = temperature of one surface of the wall

\(\large{ T_2 }\) = temperature of the other surface of the wall

\(\large{ k }\) = thermal conductivity

\(\large{ l }\) = thickness of material
