conduction convection radiantHeat transfer, abbreviated as Q, also called thermal energy, is the exertion of power that is created by heat, or the increase in temperature.  There are four ways to transfer heat: conduction, convection, mixing, and radiation.

Heat Transfer Formula

\(\large{ q = m \; c \; \Delta T    }\)         


\(\large{ q }\) = heat content

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ c }\) = specific heat

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