The amount of heat entering the system?

  1. Jun 15, 2012 #1
    If air at a constant temperature is entering the system at a known flow rate, Can we measure the amount of heat entering the system.

    For example, air at 330K is entering a system with a constant flow rate of 30CFM, can I measure heat entering this system. (Let just say we are not considering the heat dissipation or heat leaving from the system for now)

    Or do I need more data to find heat entering this system?

    Is not heat the amount of energy that is transferred from one system to another?
