Unformatted text preview: heat flux (J/m2- s) dT q = −k dx temperature gradient K = thermal conduc,vity (J/m- K- s): Defines material’s ability to transfer heat. Transfer of heat from regions of high temperature to regions of low temperature. Thermal Conduc2vity Thermal conductivity •  Occurs through la^ce vibra2on waves (phonons) and the mo2on of free electrons. •  Metals have the largest thermal conduc2vity k = kl + ke Metals have larger thermal c...
