## FAQ

**What is the Nusselt Number?**

A Nusselt number is a dimensionless unit used to calculate heat transfers between a moving fluid and a solid body.

**How is the Nusselt number calculated?**

The Nusselt number is a calculator by multiplying the convective coefficient by the length and then dividing by the conductivity of the moving fluid.

**What is the convective heat transfer coefficient?**

The convective heat transfer coefficient is the rate at which the container conducts heat with the outside atmosphere.
