Convection heat transfer equation - Heat Transfer

Q.  What is the correct formula for the rate of heat transfer (q) from a surface of body of the area A to the surrounding fluid, when surface of the body is  
at temperature Ts and the surrounding fluid is at temperature T?

k = conductivity of the body
h = coefficient of convection

a. q = k A (Ts – T)
b. q = h A (Ts – T)
c. q = (h/k) A (Ts – T)
d. q = (1/h) A (Ts – T)

ANSWER: q = h A (Ts – T)
