I would like to know what´s the formula to calculate the temperature at a given distance from a candle. I found this:
Thermal Conductivity = heat × distance / (area × temperature gradient)
λ = Q × L / (A × ΔT)
So..say I want to know the temperature at 2 m from the candle..
temperature gradient = heat x 2m x area / thermal conductivity of the air ?
Then I just have to know how hot is my candle to get the temperature at 2 m from the candle ?
I f I am right, where do I get Q and A?
