Thermal Conductivity - Thermal Conductivity is the rate at which heat passes through a specified material, expressed as the amount of heat that flows per unit time through a unit area with a temperature gradient of one degree per unit distance. (Measured in Watt per Meter per K)
Density of Liquid Condensate - The Density of Liquid Condensate is the mass of a unit volume of the liquid condensate. (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
Density - Density is mass of a unit volume of a material substance. (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
Acceleration Due To Gravity - The Acceleration Due To Gravity is acceleration gained by an object because of gravitational force. (Measured in Meter per Square Second)
Latent Heat of Vaporization - Latent heat of vaporization is defined as the heat required to change one mole of liquid at its boiling point under standard atmospheric pressure. (Measured in Kilojoule per Kilogram)
Viscosity of Film - Viscosity of Film is a measure of its resistance to deformation at a given rate. (Measured in Newton Second per Meter²)
Height - Height is the distance between the lowest and highest points of a person/ shape/ object standing upright. (Measured in Meter)
Temperature Difference - Temperature Difference is the measure of the hotness or the coldness of an object. (Measured in Kelvin)
