Difference between thermodynamics and heat transfer

Abdulaziz July 5, 2020

Thermodynamics tells us:

• how much heat is transferred (δQ)
• how much work is done (δW)
• final state of the system

Heat transfer tells us:

• how (with what modes) δQ is transferred
• at what rate δQ is transferred
• temperature distribution inside the body
