Equilibrium temperature in a homogeneous section (stationary regime)

In summary, equilibrium temperature in a homogeneous section is when the temperature remains constant over time with no net flow of heat or energy. It is determined by the balance between energy input and output, and can be affected by material properties, surrounding temperature, external heat sources, and energy rates. Studying it is important in various scientific fields and non-homogeneity can lead to varying temperatures and challenges in prediction and control.

Homework Statement
A homogeneous cylindrical section has temperature T1 and T2 in your extremes. What is the temperature of thermal equilibrium. Consider that this section was taken from a larger section in which it had a stationary thermal flow regime.
Relevant Equations
Fourier:

Q/t = k.A.(T-To)/L
I believe it is just an arithmetic medium, but I am not sure. Could someone explain to me?

'your' extremes ?

Or just the end disks ?

How does your relevant equation fit the described situation ?
(what do your variables represent ?)
(Did you make a sketch? Post it !)
