4.1 Fourier’s law: introduction

Course subject(s) 4. First step into heat and mass transfer

Welcome back to another week of Transport Phenomena! This week we will take a look at heat and mass transfer. For example, dissolving sugar in a cup of tea, or the loss of energy in electrical wires due to the resistance in the wires that turns electrical energy into heat. Furthermore, we will introduce you to the most fundamental laws of these phenomena and you will learn to use them to describe various things happening around you. Good luck!
