Engineering Riddle – No. 6 (Heat Transfer) “I Scale”
I scale in a wind-storm, I scale in a flood I scale in tornadoes, I scale in the mud I scale in an oven, the air blistering heat I scale in a wind-chill, rain, snow or sleet I scale when it’s calm, or in a twirling spin I scale with exposure, when gas goes ‘cross the skin I scale when a flying, I scale in the sky I scale when a swimming, and even when it’s dry I scale on the surface, I scale from the wall I scale whether hot or cold, or whether big or small I scale several factors, that govern flow of heat I scale how much energy, will cross the gaseous street I scale on the surface, from each end of the field I scale whether hot or cold, my scaling will not yield I scale in the vapor, when temperatures are different I scale, yes, that’s all I do; I’m just a coefficient What am I?

The answer is probably more scientific, but…a thermometer?
Very nice guess. The answer is not a thermometer, it is a particular ‘coefficient’ used in an equation in the science of heat transfer.
