Hi all,

I am very new to openFOAM and I have a question about a coded source I have implemented.

I am using sensibleInternalHeat and I am selecting the e field to code a source. My question is if I do something like:

eSource[i] -= V[i]*5 where V[i] is the volume of the cell

Am I putting in (volume of cell in m3)*(5 W/m3)


Am I putting in (volume of cell in m3)*(5W/kg)

I would greatly appreciate any clarification, I know the API shows that HE in the e file is a J/kg, but I am not sure that is what I am interacting with.
