This tool helps you calculate the heat transfer rate between two surfaces quickly and accurately.

Heat Transfer Calculator

How to use the Heat Transfer Calculator

To use this calculator, simply enter the following parameters and click “Calculate”:

  • Mass (kg): Enter the mass of the substance in kilograms.
  • Specific Heat Capacity (J/kg°C): Enter the specific heat capacity of the substance in joules per kilogram per degree Celsius.
  • Initial Temperature (°C): Enter the initial temperature of the substance in degrees Celsius.
  • Final Temperature (°C): Enter the desired final temperature of the substance in degrees Celsius.

How it calculates the results

The calculator uses the formula:

Q = m * c * ΔT

Where:

  • Q is the heat transferred in joules (J)
  • m is the mass in kilograms (kg)
  • c is the specific heat capacity in joules per kilogram per degree Celsius (J/kg°C)
  • ΔT is the change in temperature in degrees Celsius (°C)

ΔT is calculated as final_temp - initial_temp.

Limitations

This calculator assumes no phase changes and operates under ideal conditions. Extreme temperatures or conditions may require more complex calculations.
