conduction convection radiantThermal energy, abbreviated as Q, also known as heat energy and heat transfer, is the exertion of power that is created by heat, or the increase in temperature.


Thermal Energy formula

\(\large{ Q = m \; c \; \Delta T }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ Q }\) = thermal energy \(\large{Btu}\) \(\large{\frac{kg-m^2}{s^2}}\)
\(\large{ m }\) = mass \(\large{ lbm }\) \(\large{ kg }\)
\(\large{ c }\) = specific heat \(\large{\frac{Btu}{lbm-F}}\) \(\large{\frac{kJ}{kg-K}}\)
\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature differential \(\large{ F }\) \(\large{ K }\)
