Thermal Conductivity of Palladium (Pd) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ...

Heat transfer depends on a material property called thermal conductivity, even in an material as small as an atom of Palladium. Ok, so what is the thermal conductivity of an atom of Pd?

Note: Learn more about the thermal conductivity here.

In the case of Palladium, thermal conductivity is 0.718 W/cmK. Now let's talk about the cool facts about Palladium...

When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Thermal Conductivity of Palladium (Pd) [& Color, Uses, Discovery ..." Materials. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.


Who is Gelson Luz anyway?
