Francis in Mapping Ignorance: Transferencia anómala de calor de lo frío a lo caliente

He liquid He vapor between two plates

Te recomiendo leer mi última contribución al blog Mapping Ignorance, «Read it twice: Heat transfer from a cooler body to a hotter body,» May 16, 2013. El primer párrafo, en inglés, dice «Without any conflict with the second law of thermodynamics, heat can flow from a cooler but constantly heated body to another thermally connected and constantly hotter body. This anomalous heat transfer has been demonstrated in a two-phase liquid-vapor system composed of a Rayleigh–Bénard convection (RBC) cell filled one-half with normal liquid helium and one-half with helium vapor.» Seguir leyendo…

Mi contribución se basa en el artículo de Pavel Urban, David Schmoranzer, Pavel Hanzelka, Katepalli R. Sreenivasan, and Ladislav Skrbek, “Anomalous heat transport and condensation in convection of cryogenic helium,” PNAS 110(20): 8036-8039, May 14, 2013; además recomiendo consultar a Joseph J. Niemela, “Weather and anomalous heat flow occurring near absolute zero,” PNAS 110(20): 7969-7970, May 14, 2013.
