Does a black body (imagine like a square of solid black-body-matter) thermally conduct well at room temperature?
I'm working on low budget small solar power project. I want to transport heat (peak heat power about 1kW) over ~10 meter (~30ft) long pipe or hose. I was thinking about thin hose (6-8mm / about 1/4 ...
Radiation and conduction are two ways that heat is transferred. Convection isn't really a mode of transfer as the actual heat transfer really occurs through radiation/conduction and not by some other ...
How do I accurately (+/- 0.1 degrees Celsius or better) measure the temperature of a small (5 to 50 microliter) water droplet without noticeably affecting its temperature? The mass of a thermistor or ...
Do materials cool down in the vacuum of space? If yes, how does it really work?
Imagine that we have thin optical element, which is irradiated by laser. Laser heats element, so there is some heat distribution in element. There is a heat sink through upper and lower element faces ...
