Heat Transfer Rate

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Heat transfer rate, abbreviated as \(Q_t\), is the amount of hear transfered per unit of time per fluid or material.

 

Heat Transfer Rate FormulA

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

Where:

\(\large{ Q_t }\) = heat transfer rate

\(\large{ l }\) = length or distance

\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature differential

\(\large{ k_t }\) = thermal conductivity constant
