Calculating heat flux (Q) without thermal conductivity (K)

  1. Oct 21, 2015 #1
    How to calculate K or Q without one or the other?
    For example, if the material is unknown (but cannot test density, or melting temperature)
    how would you test heat flux?

    Q=K(Th-Tc)/(x)

    In the homework section the rules require you to make an attempt to answer.

    Perhaps think about other experiments that involve measuring heat or power.
