## Heat Transfer Coefficient Unit Converter

**Description:**

A heat transfer coefficient unit converter is a tool used to convert between different units of heat transfer coefficient, which measures the rate of heat transfer through a material per unit area per unit temperature difference. Heat transfer coefficient is a crucial parameter in fields such as thermodynamics, engineering, and building construction, where understanding heat flow is essential.

**Units:**

- Watt/square meter/K
- Watt/square meter/°C
- Joule/second/square meter/K
- Calorie (IT)/second/square centimeter/°C
- Kilocalorie (IT)/hour/square meter/°C
- Kilocalorie (IT)/hour/square foot/°C
- Btu (IT)/second/square foot/°F
- Btu (th)/second/square foot/°F
- Btu (IT)/hour/square foot/°F
- Btu (th)/hour/square foot/°F
- CHU/hour/square foot/°C

**Formula:**

The heat transfer coefficient (h) can be calculated using the formula:

$h = \frac{Q}{A \cdot \Delta T}$

Where:

- $h$ = Heat transfer coefficient (in the desired unit)
- $Q$ = Heat transfer rate (in watts, joules/second, or its equivalent)
- $A$ = Surface area through which heat is transferred (in square meters or its equivalent)
- $\Delta T$ = Temperature difference across the material (in kelvin, degrees Celsius, or degrees Fahrenheit)

**How to Convert:**

To convert between different units of heat transfer coefficient, follow these steps:

- Identify the unit you have and the unit you want to convert to.
- Determine the conversion factor between the two units. This factor may involve simple multiplication or division.
- Multiply or divide the heat transfer coefficient value by the conversion factor to obtain the equivalent value in the desired unit.

**Examples:**

**Conversion from Watt/square meter/K to Btu (IT)/second/square foot/°F:**Conversion Factor: 1 watt = 3.41214 Btu/hour, 1 square meter = 10.7639 square feet, 1 kelvin = 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit$1 \, \text{W/m}^2/\text{K} = \frac{3.41214}{10.7639 \times 1.8} \, \text{Btu (IT)/s/ft}^2/°F$**Conversion from Joule/second/square meter/K to Kilocalorie (IT)/hour/square foot/°C:**Conversion Factor: 1 joule = 0.000239006 kilocalorie, 1 square meter = 10.7639 square feet, 1 kelvin = 1 degree Celsius$1 \, \text{J/s/m}^2/\text{K} = \frac{0.000239006 \times 3600}{10.7639} \, \text{kcal (IT)/h/ft}^2/°C$**Conversion from Calorie (IT)/second/square centimeter/°C to CHU/hour/square foot/°C:**Conversion Factor: 1 calorie (IT) = 4.184 joules, 1 square centimeter = 0.00107639 square feet, 1 hour = 3600 seconds$1 \, \text{cal (IT)/s/cm}^2/°C = \frac{4.184 \times 3600}{0.00107639} \, \text{CHU/h/ft}^2/°C$

By following these steps, you can accurately convert between various units of heat transfer coefficient, enabling efficient analysis and communication in heat transfer-related applications.
