Abstract

When heat is conducted through an object, the amount of heat conducted is written as Q which is the amount of heat moving through the object per unit time and expressed with the unit [W]. If we suppose dQ is the amount of heat conducted through the area dA per unit time, the amount of heat that moves through a unit area per unit time is shown as
$$ q=\frac{d\overset{.}{Q}}{dA}. $$
Here, q is called heat flux and its unit is [W/m2].
