Heat transfer coefficient of air and common gases

Thermal transmission coefficients (lambda) of the most common atmospheric gases (Air, Argon, Krypton and Xenon)

Air is an excellent insulator, which is why it is used extensively in insulating materials. This article is part of a general article on the heat transfer coefficients

Lambda given in W / mK

  • Air 0.025

  • argon 0.017

  • krypton 0.009

  • xenon 0.0054
