conduction convection radiantThermal energy, abbreviated as Q, also called heat energy and heat transfer, is the exertion of power that is created by heat, or the increase in temperature.

 

Formulas that use Thermal Energy

\(\large{ Q = m \; c \; \Delta T }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ Q }\) = thermal energy

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ c }\) = specific heat

\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature differential
