the second law of thermodynamics Says that heat will move to a cooler area. Essentially, the module will absorb heat on the "cold side" and eject it out the "hot side" to a heat sink. The heat sink must be capable of dissipating the electrical power applied to the module, which also exits through the modules hot side.
