Enter the temperature difference, the R-value, and the overall heat transfer coefficient into the Heat Flow Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Heat Flow.

## Heat Flow Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Heat Flow.

HF = dT / R * HTC

Variables:

• HF is the Heat Flow ( )
• dT is the temperature difference
• R is the R-value
• HTC is the overall heat transfer coefficient

## How to Calculate Heat Flow?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Heat Flow.

1. First, determine the temperature difference.
2. Next, determine the R-value.
3. Next, determine the overall heat transfer coefficient.
4. Next, gather the formula from above = HF = dT / R * HTC.
5. Finally, calculate the Heat Flow.
6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

temperature difference = 4

R-value = 5

overall heat transfer coefficient = 10HF = dT / R * HTC =  ?
