In order to teach heat transfer systematically and with a clear physical background, it is recommended that entropy should not be ignored as a fundamental quantity. Heat transfer processes are characterized by introducing the so-called “entropic potential” of the transferred energy, and an assessment number is based on this new quantity. View Full-Text
