Total Heat Transfer

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Total Heat Transfer Formula

\(\large{ Q =  hA \;  \left( T_s \;-\; T_{\infty} \right)  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ Q }\) = total heat transfer (heat put into system or heat lost)

\(\large{ A }\) = surface area where heat is transfered

\(\large{ h }\) = heat transfer coefficient

\(\large{ T_s }\) = surface temperature

\(\large{ T_{\infty} }\) = approach fluid temperature
