Amperage to heat ratio

Question, About how much heat per ohm of resistance will be generated across a connection.
Also is the heat generation linear. Does it have a direct relationship to the amount of current. Or,is the relationship logrithmic?

Heat is watts therefore watts equals current squared times resistance. Looks pretty linear to me. Check the graph. This is current across 1 ohm. Current is at the bottom increasing by 1 amp.

I have a few questions.
1. is the temperature scale Farenheit or Centigrade
2. Is this graph calculated or is it the result of actual observation. If so what were the conditions?
