Does anyone know the heat transfer coefficient of air and water? I'm working on something and want to have my facts straight.

Thanks,

Air = .02 W/mK
Water = .6 W/mK

One more question. What is the measurement "W/mK"? I'm not familiar with that one. I assume it's Watts per something?

Also, what's your name, I need to give you credit in my write up for the info!

Thanks,

The unit should be W/m^2. K
where
W = Watts
m^2 = square metres
K = Temp in Deg. Kelvin
