The heat flux between the surface of the pond and the surrounding air  is 60 W/ Explanation:

Heat flux is the rate at which heat energy moves across a surface, it is the heat transferred per unit area of the surface. This can be calculated using the expression in equation 1;

q = Q/A ………………………….1

since we are working with the convectional heat transfer coefficient equation 1 become;

q = h ( ) ……………………2

where q is the  heat flux;

Q is the heat energy that will be transferred;

h is the convectional heat coefficient = 20 W/ .K; is the surface temperature = C 23°C + 273.15  = 296.15 K; is the surrounding temperature = C = 20°C + 273.15  = 293.15 K;

The values are substituted into equation 2;

q = 20 W/ .K (  296.15 K – 293.15 K)

q = 20 W/ .K ( 3 K)

q =  60 W/ Therefore the heat flux between the surface of the pond and the surrounding air  is 60 W/
