# equations

Make sure that all the terms in your equations are defined and used consistently both in the text and in subsequent equations, figures, and tables.

The conductive heat flow equation is:

dQ/dt = AKdT/dx

dQ/dt = AKdT/dx

where

dQ/dt = the time rate of heat transfer

A = the area of an end contact

K = the thermal conductivity

dT/dx = the thermal gradient.
