Heat Emission from Animals

Sponsored Links

Heat emission from animals in a state of relaxtion can be estimated with the equation 

H = 6.6 m0.75   (1)


H = heat emission (Btu per Hr)

m = mass or weight (pounds)

  • 1 lb = 0.4536 kg
  • 1 Btu/h = 0.293 W

For animals in moderate activity - use a multiplying factor of 2.
