The direction of the heat transfer takes place from a body with higher temperature to a body with lower temperature. The heat transfer takes place through all directions of the system with different rates of heat transfer. Heat transfer with a certain rate is a heat flow. Heat flow can be defined as a quantity of heat transfer within definite time. Q is the symbol of heat flow.
