Thermal Energy

Thermal Energy

Thermal energy ( \(Q\) or \(TE\) ) (also called heat energy and heat transfer) is the exertion of power that is created by heat, or the increase in temperature.

Thermal Energy formula

\(Q = mc \Delta T\)          \( thermal \; energy  \;=\;   mass \;\;x\;\;  speciric \; heat  \;\;x\;\;  temperature \; differential \)


\(Q\) or \(TE\) = thermal energy

\(m\) = mass

\(c\) = specific heat

\(\Delta T\) = temperature differential

Solve for:

\(c = \frac {Q }   {m   \Delta T}\)

\(\Delta T = \frac {Q}{mc}\)
