Thermal Conductivity Constant

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

formula

\( k_t =   \frac {\dot {Q}_t   l}   {\Delta T}       \)

Where:

\(k_t\) = thermal conductivity constant

\(\dot {Q}_t\) = heat transfer rate

\(l\) = length

\(\Delta T\) = temperature differential

Solve for:

\( l = k_t \frac {\Delta T} {\dot {Q}_t}   \)
