# Heat Flux Density Converter

Heat Flux Density, often referred to simply as heat flux, is a crucial parameter in the field of thermodynamics and heat transfer. It represents a flow of energy per unit area per unit time.

Measured in various units, understanding and converting these units is essential for accurate analysis and communication in the realm of heat transfer.

• Watt / meter² (W/m²): One Watt per Square Meter is the SI unit of heat flux and represents one watt of power transferred through an area of one square meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 W/m² = 1 W/m² (Base Unit)

• Kilowatt / meter² (kW/m²): One kilowatt of power transferred through one square meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 kW/m² = 1,000 W/m²

• Watt / centimeter² (W/cm²): One watt of power transferred through one square centimeter.
Conversion Factor: 1 W/cm² = 10,000 W/m²

• Watt / inch² (W/in²): One watt of power transferred through one square inch.
Conversion Factor: 1 W/in² = 1,550.0031 W/m²

• Joule / second / meter² (J/s/m²): One joule of energy transferred per second through one square meter. Because one Watt (W) is equal to one Joule per Second (J/s), this unit corresponds to one watt per square meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 J/s/m² = 1 W/m²

• Kilocalorie (IT) / hour / meter² (kcal/h/m²): One kilocalorie of energy transferred per hour through one square meter.
Conversion Factor: 1 kcal/h/m² = 1.163 W/m²

• Kilocalorie (IT) / hour / foot² (kcal/h/ft²): One kilocalorie of energy transferred per hour through one square foot.
Conversion Factor: 1 kcal/h/ft² = 12.5184 W/m²

• Dyne / hour / centimeter (dyn/h/cm): One dyne of force applied per hour through one centimeter.
Conversion Factor: 1 dyn/h/cm = 0.0000002778 W/m²

• Erg / hour / millimeter² (erg/h/mm²): One erg of energy transferred per hour through one square millimeter.
Conversion Factor: 1 erg/h/mm² = 0.0000277778 W/m²

• Foot pound / minute / foot² (ft•lb/min/ft²): One foot-pound of energy transferred per minute through one square foot.
Conversion Factor: 1 ft•lb/min/ft² = 0.24323 W/m²

• Horsepower / foot² (hp/ft²): One horsepower transferred through one square foot.
Conversion Factor: 1 hp/ft² = 8,026.65 W/m²; 1 hp(metric)/ft² = 7,916.84 W/m²

• Btu / second / foot² (Btu/s/ft²): One British Thermal Unit of energy transferred per second through one square foot.
Conversion Factor: 1 Btu(IT)/s/ft² = 11,356.5 W/m²; 1 Btu(th)/s/ft² = 11,348.9 W/m²

• Btu / minute / foot² (Btu/min/ft²): One British Thermal Unit of energy transferred per minute through one square foot.
Conversion Factor: 1 Btu(IT)/min/ft² = 189.2754 W/m²; 1 Btu(th)/min/ft² = 189.1489 W/m²

• Btu / hour / foot² (Btu/h/ft²): One British Thermal Unit of energy transferred per hour through one square foot.
Conversion Factor: 1 Btu(IT)/h/ft² = 3.1546 W/m²; 1 Btu(th)/h/ft² = 3.1525 W/m²

• CHU / hour / foot² (CHU/h/ft²): One Centigrade Heat Unit transferred per hour through one square foot.
Conversion Factor: 1 CHU/h/ft² = 5.6783 W/m²
