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"

The SI unit used for thermal conductivity is [W/m K], while a common Imperial unit is [Btu/h ft °F].

Thermal conductivity unit converter

The thermal conductivity of nitrogen depends on temperature and pressure as shown in the figures and tables below.

Online Nitrogen Thermal Conductivity Calculator

The calculator below can be used to estimate the thermal conductivity of nitrogen at given temperature and atmospheric pressure.

The output thermal conductivity is given as mW/(m K), Btu(IT)/(h ft °F), (Btu(IT) in)/(h ft2 °F) and kcal(IT)/(h m K).

Temperature

Choose the actual unit of temperature: °C  °F  °R 

See also other properties of Nitrogen at varying temperature and pressure:   Density and specific weight, Dynamic and Kinematic Viscosity  and  Specific heat (heat capacity), and Thermophysical properties at standard conditions,  as well as thermal conductivity of air, ammonia, carbon dioxide, methane, propane and water. For thermal conductivity of construction materials and other chemical substances, see related documents at the bottom of the page.
