# Air - Thermal Conductivity vs. Temperature and Pressure

## Online calculator with figures and tables showing air thermal conductivity vs. temperature and pressure. SI and imperial units.

Thermal conductivity is a material property that describes ability to conduct heat . Thermal conductivity can be defined as

" the quantity of heat transmitted through a unit thickness of a material - in a direction normal to a surface of unit area - due to a unit temperature gradient under steady state conditions".

Thermal conductivity most common units are W/(m K) in the SI system and Btu/(h ft °F) in the Imperial system.

Tabulated values and thermal conductivity units conversion are given below the figures.
