RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Heating of copper wire... - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi again out there :-)
As far as I could find in my physics book the heating of a copper wire with known weight from its diameter and length, a known applied power and time will be: dT = (P*t)/(m*c) and T1 = T0 + dT
Example:
P=1W, t=3600s (60min), m=1kg, T0=25 degC and c=387 J/(Kg*K) gives
dT = 9.3 and T1=34.3 degC.
Fine, but what if one has to account for the heat conductance and heat radiation from the wire (natural air cooling) - then what will the final temperature be in degrees Celcius?

Hi jph
One site I found has a lot of physics thermal on-line calculators run in java, one of which might help you.
The site is www.martindalecenter.com
