This transfer occurs in there ways: conduction, convection and radiation. Transfering heat from low temperature to high temperature with the kinetic motion or direct impact of molecules is called heat conduction. This is the microscopic level diffusion process. In this experiment we investigate thermal conduction. The heat conduction equation is: This equation has a minus term. Because is smaller than zero. Because = Δθ Δθ θ 2 – θ 1 and θ 2 < θ 1 T HE PURPOSE OF T H E EXPER I MENT: We take a solid material whose heat conduction coefficient is not known and determine its coefficient. T HE EXPER I MENT T HEORY: We use Fourier Equation to calculate heat conduction coefficient. The heat flux through the block;...
