Introduction-Heat Transfer

## 1 Heat =⇒ Energy Transport rate (kW or kJ/s)

2 Thermodynamics =⇒ Relation between heat and other forms of
energy
3 Heat transfer rate form of Energy transfer
4 Modes of heat transfer
1 Conduction
2 Convection
5 Potential =⇒ Temperature difference (K )

Conduction heat transfer

## Condction heat transfer

1 Heat transfer takes place as conduction in a soilid if there is a
2 conduction is mediated by the combination of vibrations and collisions
of molecules
3 diffusion and collisions of free electrons
4 Conduction is within a solid or between solid objects in thermal
contact.
