Variables Used
Fin Heat Transfer Rate - (Measured in Watt) - Fin Heat Transfer Rate is that extend from an object to increase the rate of heat transfer to or from the environment by increasing convection.
Perimeter of Fin - (Measured in Meter) - The perimeter of fin is the total distance around the edge of the figure.
Heat Transfer Coefficient - (Measured in Watt per Meter² per K) - The Heat Transfer Coefficient is the heat transferred per unit area per kelvin. Thus area is included in the equation as it represents the area over which the transfer of heat takes place.
Thermal Conductivity of Fin - (Measured in Watt per Meter per K) - Thermal Conductivity of Fin is rate of heat passes through Fin, expressed as amount of heat flows per unit time through a unit area with a temperature gradient of one degree per unit distance.
Cross Sectional Area - (Measured in Square Meter) - Cross sectional area is the area of a two-dimensional shape that is obtained when a three dimensional shape is sliced perpendicular to some specified axis at a point.
Surface Temperature - (Measured in Kelvin) - Surface Temperature is the temperature at or near a surface. Specifically, it may refer to as Surface air temperature, the temperature of the air near the surface of the earth.
Surrounding Temperature - (Measured in Kelvin) - The Surrounding Temperature of a body is temperature of the surroundings body.
