Submitted by: Steve Gervais on Aug 03, 2006
Date Last Modified: Aug 03, 2006
Title: Heat Transfer
Description: Assignments based from Principles of Fire Behavior by James G. Quintiere - Chapter 3
Type of Task: Individual
Topics: Heat; Energey; Heat Transfer; Heat Flux
Audience: College Lower Division
Prerequisites Skills: College algebra; Chemistry; Physics
