determines the quantity of heat which flows in unit time through unit area of a layer of the substance
of unit thickness with unit difference of temperature between it's faces.
measures the change of temperature which would be produced in unit volume of the substance by
quantity of heat which flows in unit time through unit area of a layer of the substance of unit
thickness with unit difference of temperature between it's faces.
is expressed as a quantity of heat necessary to rise the temperature of unit mass of the substance by one unit.
is the tendency of matter to change in volume in response to a change in temperature.
is a measure of how strongly a material opposes the flow of electric current.
is the relative ability of a material's surface to emit energy by radiation.
Thermal Gravimetric Analysis
is a type of testing performed on samples that determines changes in
weight in relation to change in temperature.
Simultaneous Thermal Analysis
is the combination of a thermal gravimetric analysis and specific heat measurements.
is a measure of the total energy of a thermodynamic system. It includes the internal
energy, which is the energy required to create a system, and the amount of energy required to
make room for it by displacing its environment and establishing its volume and pressure.
