Why is a uniform surface heat flux different from a uniform temperature surface? It seems like if the heat flux is uniform, then the surface temperature is uniform right? So how does having a uniform temperature not imply uniform heat flux? Theoretically, the temperature is uniform because of some generation or flux is it not?
