Fourier’s Law A rate equation that allows determination of the conduction heat flux from knowledge of the temperature distribution in a medium Fourier’s Law Its most general (vector) form for multidimensional conduction is: q k T ′′ = - Implications: Heat transfer is in the direction of decreasing temperature (basis for minus sign). Direction of heat transfer is perpendicular to lines of constant temperature ( isotherms ). Heat flux vector may be resolved into orthogonal components. Fourier’s Law serves to define the thermal conductivity of the medium / k q T ′′ ≡ -

### What students are saying

• 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.
