• 4. Thermal:
MEANS
“HEAT.”
Conductivity:
Means
“ability to convey”.
• 5. Definition:
• It is the property of a material that indicates its ability to conduct heat.
• 6. It is represented by k and is measured in watts per kelvin per metre (W·K−1·m−1).
• 7. The reciprocal of thermal conductivity is thermal resistivity.
• 8.
• 9. Thermal Conductivity
Assume that no heat is lost through the edges of the disc.
Thermodynamics
• 10. Thermal Conductivity
For a uniform rod the rate of flow of heat through a conductor ( Q/ t) is proportional to
• the cross sectional area (A) of the conductor
• 11. the temperature gradient (  q/  x)
The constant of proportionality, k, is the thermal conductivity BUT note that heat flows down a temperature gradient so we also introduce a negative sign to account for this and obtain:
Thermodynamics
• 12. Thermal Conductivity
k depends on the material and is called the thermal conductivity.
Rearranging in terms of k we can evaluate the units of k:
So k is defined as the rate of flow of heat through unit area of cross section of 1m of material when the temperature difference between the surfaces is 1K.
Thermodynamics
• 13. Methods to measure thermal conductivity.
Main methods:
Transient state methods
Definition:
These methods are used when the materials are in equilibrium state( means when temperature of the materials is constant).
It steady state implies constant signals.
As material take to long time to reach equilibrium state so it is slow method.
• 15. TRANSIENT STATE METHOD:
Definition:
These methods are used during the heating of material.
Non-steady-state methods to measure the thermal conductivity do not require the signal to obtain a constant value.
Readings can be taken during heating of material.
Mathematical analysis of the data is in general more difficult.

• 17. THERMAL CONDUCTIVITYAPPARATUS:
• 18. OBJECTIVES:
• 19.
• 20. PROCEDUER:
Take ice block ,find its weight and volume and place it on the material sheet.
Then place it on the plate which is under observation
Then provide steam for sometime then we the ice converted to water then measure the weight of the water (in beaker).
Then place this values in the formula and calculate the conductivity.
• 21. Exp:
Formula:
K= Ro dx / A dT
dx = thickness of material.
dT =change in temperature.

• 24.
• 25.
• 26. Applications:As aluminums sheets are used in houses for blocking of heat to come in and remain in cool inside.
• 27. Used in lab: Experiments are performed in lab for finding thermal conductivity of different materials.
• 28.
• Now a days different materials are used such like graphene and diamonds for transferring heat which is also due to the techniques of finding thermal conductivities.
Also because of this property of the material we can use desired elements in electric circuits like copper, steel etc according to their conductivity.
• 29. Latest researches.CARBON NANOTUBES
• 30. MAIN POINTS:
Before carbon nanotubes the best thermal conductor was diamond.
Carbon nanotubes have extraordinary thermal conductivity properties.
• 31. STRUCTURAL IMAGE:
• 32. RESEARCHES
The record-setting anisotropic thermal conductivity of carbon nanotubes is enabling applications where heat needs to move from one place to another.
carbon nanotubes have the intrinsic characteristics desired in material used as electrodes in batteries and capacitors.
• 33. Graphene:
