Measuring Heat Flow
Country: United States

How can you measure heat flow?
Typically you do not measure heat flow directly; instead, you measure
temperature changes in materials. If you know the heat capacity of the
material, you can use the temperature change to calculate the heat
that was transferred. If you take continuous temperature readings, you
can calculate the heat flow in near-real-time.
