Q = mh*ch*(Thi-Tho)
This formula uses 5 Variables
Variables Used
Heat - (Measured in Joule) - Heat is the form of energy that is transferred between systems or objects with different temperatures (flowing from the high-temperature system to the low-temperature system).
Mass of Hot Fluid - (Measured in Kilogram) - The Mass of Hot Fluid is the mass of the hotter fluid in the heat exchanger.
Specific Heat Capacity of Hot Fluid - (Measured in Joule per Kilogram per K) - Specific Heat Capacity of Hot Fluid is a physical property of matter, defined as the amount of heat to be supplied to a unit mass of the hotter fluid to produce a unit change in its temperature.
Inlet Temperature of Hot Fluid - (Measured in Kelvin) - Inlet Temperature of Hot Fluid is the temperature at which the hot fluid enters the heat exchanger.
Outlet Temperature of Hot Fluid - (Measured in Kelvin) - Outlet Temperature of Hot Fluid is the temperature at which the hot fluid exits the heat exchanger.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Mass of Hot Fluid: 10 Kilogram --> 10 Kilogram No Conversion Required
Specific Heat Capacity of Hot Fluid: 10 Joule per Kilogram per K --> 10 Joule per Kilogram per K No Conversion Required
Inlet Temperature of Hot Fluid: 35 Kelvin --> 35 Kelvin No Conversion Required
Outlet Temperature of Hot Fluid: 20 Kelvin --> 20 Kelvin No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Q = mh*ch*(Thi-Tho) --> 10*10*(35-20)
Evaluating ... ...
Q = 1500
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
1500 Joule --> No Conversion Required
1500 Joule <-- Heat
