    Hello,

    In heat transfer, for the components to be in parallel, does that simply mean that the heat is transferring through all of the components at the same time, such that ΔT is the same for both, similar to how the voltage is the same for two components in parallel of a circuit?

    Yes. Ohm's law also applies to thermal circuits in the same way it does to electrical circuits.
