Convective Heat Transfer Calculator Input Values
Area of the solid object (A) = m2 [square metre]
Initial temperature of object, (T1) = K [Kelvin degree]
Final temperature of object (T2) = K [Kelvin degree]
Coefficient of thermal convection (k) = W/m2∙K [Watts per square metre times Kelvin]
Flowing time of heat energy through object (t) = s [second]

Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations are available below. As you enter the specific factors of each convective heat transfer calculation, the Convective Heat Transfer Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the Physics formula elements with each element of the convective heat transfer calculation. You can then email or print this convective heat transfer calculation as required for later use.
