INTRODUCTION Heat Transfer is the motion of the thermal energy. Heat can be transferred in three different ways: conduction, convection and radiation. In conduction heat is transferred from the region of high temperature to the region of low temperature with the kinetic motion or direct impact of molecules. This phenomenon is fundamentally a diffusion process that occurs at the microscopic level. The thermal conduction is investigated in this experiment. Thermal conduction is an energy transfer due to the temperature difference. The heat conduction equation is: This formula shows that the heat flux goes through the direction that is perpendicular to the temperature gradient and is proportional to the temperature gradient.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
