Heat transfer is a process whereby thermal energy is transferred in response to a temperature difference. There are three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. When there is a species concentration difference in a multicomponent mixture, mass transfer occurs. There are two modes of mass transfer: diffusion and convection.
