Chapter 13 - "The Transfer of Heat" Convection – the process in which heat is carried from place to place by the bulk movement of a fluid. Conduction – the process whereby heat is transferred directly through a material, with any bulk motion of the material playing no role in the transfer. Conduction of Heat Through a Material Q = (kA T)t The amount of heat Q conducted during L time t through a bar of length L and cross- sectional area A; T is the temperature difference between the ends of the bar and k is the thermal conductivity of the material Radiation the process in which energy is transferred by means of
