Heat Transfer Rate

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

formulA

\(Q_t = k_t \frac { \Delta T}{l} \)

Where:

\(Q_t\) = heat transfer rate

\(k_t\) = thermal conductivity constant  

\( \Delta T\) = temperature differential

\(l\) = distance or length

Solve for:

\(k_t = \frac { {Q_t} l } {\Delta T } \)

\(\Delta T = \frac { {Q_t} l } {k_t } \)

\( l = k_t \frac {\Delta T} {Q_t}   \)
