Heat Flux Density Converter
Heat flux or thermal flux is the rate of heat energy transfer through a given surface.
The measurement of heat flux is most often done by measuring a temperature difference
over a piece of material with known thermal conductivity.
Heat rate is a scalar quantity, while heat flux is a vectorial quantity. To define the heat flux at a certain point in space, one takes the limiting case where the size of the surface becomes infinitesimally small.
Q = mcΔT
Q is taken to be the heat energy put into a certain amount of a substance with mass m,
c is the specific heat of the substance, and
ΔT is the temperature change.
