In the study of thermodynamics, the heat transfer coefficient is the amount of heat that is transferred per unit area. For heat transfer to have a physical meaning, there must be a temperature difference between the heated surface and the contact area.
There are many units of heat transfer coefficient that can be converted into each other. The easiest and most efficient way is to use a heat transfer coefficient converter. Try ours for free.
