That was very helpful, Papa. Thanks! I like your other rule of thumb also: you should be able to keep your fingers on the heatsink for 10 seconds.

Tj = 89

Where did 116 come from?
I know this is an old thread but i also find this confusing.
Maybe someone could explain a little further.

You can model the thermal circuit as an electrical circuit [Thermal unit = Electrical unit]:

Thermal resistance (Rth) = R
Power (W)= I
Temperature (T)= V

From Ohm's law

V = I * R
T = W * Rth

Most likely a simple mistake

yup

but even with + instead of - , it can't be 116

however , what's small typo between friends ....... logic is what counts

I found Da Logic :

Tj = W * (Rj + Rc + Rh) + Ta
Tj = 16 * (1 + 1 + 2) + 25
Tj = 16 * 4 + 25
Tj = 64 + 25
Tj = 89

now , just add 42

so

Tj= 89+42
Tj= 116
