The temperature difference between the air close to the skin and the surrounding air
The surface area of skin exposed to air
The convective heat transfer coefficient
What is the convection equation?
(h_{convective})(S_{wetted})(T_{skin}-T_{air})
How do you find convection heat exchange constant?
Look at the graph but be careful to look at the right axis
What is heat exchange by conduction?
HEat exchange between surfaces in contact with a surface
WHat does heat exchange by conduction depend on?
THe temperature difference between the skin and the surface
The surface area of skin touching the surface
The conductive heat transfer coefficient
WHat is the heat exchange by conduction equation?
(h_{k})(S_{k})(T_{skin}-T_{surface})
What is heat exchange terrestrial radiation?
The amount of long wavelength terrestrial radiation we gain or lose depends on the difference between the temperature of our skin and the temperature of our surroundings
the surface area exposed to our surroundings and the radiative coefficent
