Likewise, the thermal conductivity k is a measure of a material’s ability to conduct heat. 2 W/m·K for iron at room temperature, which indicates that iron conducts heat more than 100 times faster than water can. Thus we say that water is a poor heat conductor relative to iron, although water is an excellent medium to store thermal energy. Equation 1–21 for the rate of conduction heat transfer under steady conditions can also be viewed as the defining equation for thermal conductivity. Thus the thermal conductivity of a material can be defined as the rate of H A=W×H · Q W L FIGURE 1–26 In heat conduction analysis, A represents the area normal to the direction of heat transfer.

He is said to have conceived the idea of the law of gravity upon the observation of the fall of an apple in 1665. With the three fundamental laws that bear his name and are described in Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, Newton is known as the father of classical mechanics. Newton showed that each of Kepler’s three laws on the motion of planets and stars could be derived from the single law of gravity. Newton is also credited for the discovery of the composite nature of white light and the separation of different colors by a prism.

4 W 5 1800 s Dt 11 CHAPTER 1 (c) Heat flux is defined as the heat transfer per unit time per unit area, or the rate of heat transfer per unit area. 1 m)2 Discussion Note that heat flux may vary with location on a surface. The value calculated above is the average heat flux over the entire surface of the ball. 1–4 ■ THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS The first law of thermodynamics, also known as the conservation of energy principle, states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed during a process; it can only change forms.
