    'ratio of conductive to convective heat fluxes'?

    Hi,

    I want to know if it is okay for me write 'the ratio of conductive to convective heat flux' in stead of 'the ratio of conductive heat flux to convective heat flux'?

    Thanks!

    Yes. "Instead" is one word.

    What about
    The ratio of conductive to convective heat fluxes
    or
    The ratio of conductive heat flux to that of convective one.
