Tutorial - Power and Thermal Dissipation

And what would u say if a regulator with heat sink, still gets too hot to touch?
in my circuit, i get about 20-21V from a power supply, to a 12V regulator and the 12V are fed to a 5V regulator.
at some point i guess the 12V regulator does not operate correctly, driving the whole circuit off…
