# Modes of Heat Transfer

 This module explores the various ways heat transfer can occur, introducing conduction, convection and radiation. The associated equations are presented including Fourier’s law, the 1-D heat diffusion equation, Newton’s law of cooling, the lumped capacity solution, and Stefan-Boltzmann law. This module displays heat transfer concepts through images, MapleSim examples, and interactive components to reinforce understanding. Keywords & Topics: Heat transfer, introduction, thermal, conduction, convection, radiation, heat flux, Fourier’s law, Newton’s law of cooling, Stefan, Boltzmann, lumped capacity, Biot number, transport laws, black body, Wein’s law Main Topic: Heat Transfer
