## Main Question or Discussion Point

This question is easier to explain with an example.

A silicon microprocessor consumes 100W of real power. If the surrounding air has a temperature of 22°C, and the temperature of the microprocessor must stay below 60°C, how much heat must the microprocessor dissipate?

This isn’t a homework or coursework question. I just want to know the formulas and relationships involved.

Thanks!
