11 graphically describes this definition. 11(a) heat (Q) flows from the high tem- perature body, hot water, in the heating unit to the lower temperature body, the air in the room. 11 (b) shows that heat will flow from the higher temperature body, room air, to the lower temperature body, the air in the refrigerator interior, due to the temperature difference. 12. Of course if there is no temperature difference, there is no heat flow. The most common unit used for heat in the United States is the BTU (British Thermal Unit).

This number is said to have five significant figures, because the value of the fifth digit from the left is known. The number might be used to select a fan, and then to balance the system to obtain this flow rate. However, neither manufacturer's fan ratings or testing instruments can produce that accurate a value. Equipment and instrument ratings are often only accurate to within 2-5% of listed values, therefore there is no point in calculating or measuring data to an excess number of significant figures.
