Thermal diffusivity is a measure of the ability of a substance to transmit a difference in temperature, expressed as the thermal conductivity divided by the product of specific heat capacity and density. Thermal conductivity is a measure of the ability of a substance to conduct heat, determined by the rate of heat flow normally through an area in the substance divided by the area and by minus the component of the temperature gradient in the direction of flow: measured in watts per metre per kelvin. Symbol λ, κ sometimes shortened to conductivity.
