Heat Flux

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Heat flux ( \(Q"\) ) (also called thermal flux) is the heat flow rate transfer through a given surface, per unit surface.

Heat Flux Formula

\(\large{ Q" = \frac { Q_f } { A }  }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ Q" }\) = heat flux

\(\large{ A }\) = area

\(\large{ Q_f }\) = heat flow rate
