  • Conduction: Conduction is that mode of transmission of heat by which heat travels, through an unequally heated body, from the hot end to the cold end, from particle to particle, the particles themselves remaining at their mean positions.
     Notes | EduRev
  • Convection: It is defined as that mode of transmission of heat by which heat travels from one part of a body to another by the actual motion of the heated particles of the body.
  • Radiation: It is defined as that mode of transmission of heat in which heat travels from hot body to cold body in straight lines without heating the intervening medium.

  • Temperature Gradient: It is defined as the rate of change of temperature of different cross-section with distance.

  • Coefficient of thermal conductivity
    Rate of flow of heat = dQ/dt
    Heat current, through a conducting rod, is defined as the amount of heat conducted across any cross-section of the rod in one second.
    H= dQ/dt
    H depends upon the following factors:
    (a) Area of a cross-section of rod: H ∝ A
    (b) Temperature Gradient: H ∝-dθ/dx
    (c)  Nature of the material

    So, H = -KA (dθ/dx)
    Here K is called the coefficient of thermal conductivity of the material of rod. It depends upon the nature of the material of the rod.

    (d) The total heat Q crossing from one cross-section to the other in time t:-

    Q = KA(θ12)t/l
    Or K = Ql/A(θ12)t

    Coefficient of thermal conductivity of the material of a rod is defined as the heat current (amount of heat flowing per second) flowing per unit area between two cross-section of the rod each of area 1 m2 and separated 1 m apart.

    Dimension of K:
    [K] = [M1L1T-3K-1]
    Unit:- C.G.S- cal cm-1s-1 ºC-1
    S.I. :- Wm-1K-1

  • Thermal Conductance (σh):- It is defined as heat current per unit temperature difference.
    σh= KA/l
    σh= H/dθ
    Unit- S.I- WK-1

Question 1:Two materials having coefficients of thermal conductivity ‘3K’ and ‘K’ and thickness’ and ‘3d’ respectively, are joined to form a slab as shown in the figure. The temperature of the outer surface is ‘θ2’ and ‘θ1’ respectively, (θ>θ1). The temperature at the interface is

  • Thermal Resistance (RH)
    Thermal resistance, of a conductor, is defined as the temperature difference between its two cross-sections when a unit heat current flows through it.
    Reciprocal thermal conductance is known as the thermal resistance of the substance.

    Rh= 1/σH = l/KA = dθ/H

    Units of Rh: S.I – W-1K

  • Analogy between electricity and heat
    H= (θ1- θ2)/(l/KA) = (θ1- θ2)/Rh

  • Searle’s Method for K
    K= m(θ4- θ3)d/A(θ1- θ)t
    The ratio of thermal and electrical conductivities is the same for the metals at a particular temperature and is proportional to the absolute temperature of the metal. If T is the absolute temperature, then
    K/σ ∝ T or K/ σT = constant

  • Ingen Hausz Experiment:- K1/K2 = l12/ l22

  • Thermal resistance of a conductor of length d:  RTH = d/KA

  • Flow of a heat through a composite slab
    (a)Thermal resistance in series: Thermal resistance of the composite slab is equal to the sum of their individual thermal resistances.

    (l1 +l2)/KA = (l1/K1A) + (l2/K2A)
    Rcomb = Rh+Rh'
    If l1=l2=l, then, K = 2K1K2/K1+K2

    Temperature of the interface:

    θ0= [θ1Rh' + θ2Rh]/ [Rh+ Rh'] or θ
    = [θ1K1l2+ θ2 K2l1]/ [K1l2+ K2l1]

    (b) Thermal resistance in parallel: Reciprocal of the combination thermal resistance is equal to the sum of the reciprocals of individual thermal resistances.
    1/Rcomb = 1/Rh + 1/Rh
  • Convection: It is the mode of transmission of heat, through fluids, in which the particle of fluids acquire heat from one region and deliver the same to the other regions by leaving their mean positions and moving from one point to another.

  • Radiation: Radiation is that process of transmission of heat in which heat travels from one point to another in straight lines, with velocity of light, without heating the intervening medium.

  • Bolometer: If Rt and R0 are the resistances of the conductor at 0ºC and tºC, then, Rt = R0(1+αt), Here α is the temperature coefficient of change of resistance with temperature.

  • Absorptive power (a): Absorptive power (a) of the substance is defined as the ratio between amounts of heat absorbed by it to the total amount of heat incident upon it.
    a = Q1/Q

  • Reflecting Power (r): Reflecting power (r) of a substance is defined as the ratio between amount of heat reflected by the substance to the total amount of heat incident upon it.
    r= Q2/Q

  • Transmitting power (t): Transmitting power (t) of a substance is defined as the ratio between amount of heat transmitted by the body to the total amount of heat incident upon it.
    t = Q3/Q
    a + r + t = Q1/Q + Q2/Q + Q3/Q = [Q1+ Q2+ Q3]/Q = Q/Q = 1

  • Radiant emittance (E): Radiant emittance of a body at a temperature T is defined as the total amount of energy (for all wavelengths) radiated per unit time, per unit area by the body.

    Unit - S.I: Jm-2s-1
    C.G.S: erg cm-2s-1

  • Energy Density: Total energy density (U) at any point is defined as the radiant energy per unit volume, around that point, for wave-lengths taken together.      Notes | EduRev

  • Kirchhoff’s law of heat radiation
     Notes | EduRev
    It states that at any temperature, the ratio of emissive power eλ of a body to its absorptive power aλ, for a particular wave-length, is always constant and is equal to the emissive power of perfect black body for that wavelength.
    eλ/aλ = Constant = Eλ
    This implies the ratio between eλ and aλ for any body is a constant quantity (= Eλ).

  • Wein’s Displacement Law
     Notes | EduRevIt states that wavelength of radiation which is emitted with maximum intensity varies inversely as the absolute temperature of the body.
    λm×T = Constant

  • Stefan’s Law: Radiant emittance or the energy radiated per second per unit area by a perfect black body varies directly as the fourth power of its absolute temperature.
    E = σT4
    Here σ is the Stefan’s constant and its value is 5.735×10-8 Wm-2K-4

  • Spectral emissive power: eλ= Q/At(dλ)

  • Emissivity: ε = e/E,  0 ≤ ε ≤1

  • Rate of loss of heat: -dQ/dT = εAσ(θ4- θ04)

  • For spherical objects: (dQ/dT)1/(dQ/dT)2 = r12/r22

  • The emissivity of a body is numerically equal to its absorptive power.
    e = aλ
    (a) Emissivity of body determines the radiant emittance of a body.
    (b) Emissivity of a perfect body is always one.
    (c) Emissivity of any body other than a perfect black body is less than one.
    (d) Emissivity of any body is numerically equal to its absorbing power.

  • Newton’s Law of Colling: It states that the rate of loss of heat of a body is directly proportional to the temperature difference between the body and surroundings.
    dQ/dt = -K(T-T0) or (T-T0) ∝ e-KT

  • Wein’s Radiation Law: Eλdλ = (A/λ5) f(λT) dλ = (A/λ5) e-a/λT

  • Solar Constant: S = (RS/RES)σT4

Question 2:According to Newton’s law of cooling, the rate of cooling of a body is proportional to (ΔӨ)n, where is the difference of the temperature of the body and the surroundings, and n is equal to
