I know -- I went to the website.ESP = Elliott Sound Products, not quite what you were thinking WBahn. It certainly coincidental. Still, it's a very good website.
So, to get started, if you have power (watts), and you need temperature, you must be heating something. Do you know the mass and the material that you are heating? You can then look up the "specific heat" of the material you are heating. The units of Specific Heat is (J/(g*C)). Then you need the time that the heat is applied to the material. This all assumes that 100% of the energy is transferred to the material that is heated.Does anyone know how to mathematically convert Watts to Degrees Centigrade?
Unfortunately there's no straight answer. You really need to provide more information. The temperature is highly dependent on the physical size and shape of the slug, the type of aluminum, distance from the coil, and even is affected by ambient temperature, humidity, and how high above sea level you are. Your best option would be to throw a thermocouple on the slug to actually measure the temperature.Im glad I made you guys smile a bit . I am heating an aluminum slug via current induction...Therefore, I am trying to generate a formula as to what will be the final "stable" temperature in a "stable" ambient in a set current.
What it comes down to is the ability to come up with a heat balance equation.Im glad I made you guys smile a bit . I am heating an aluminum slug via current induction...Therefore, I am trying to generate a formula as to what will be the final "stable" temperature in a "stable" ambient at a set current.
