I used to think that the heat does rise even in solid metals with no gas/liquid around(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(No density argument is possible then.)

But couldn't find anything describing or even verifying it.

I'am pretty sure the gravitationally induced anharonicity in the atomic core potentials

should have at least a little effect.

The simplest description of heat transport in a thermally isolated rod is:

Power = diffTemp * ( thermConduct * Area /length)

My question would be wether it is necessary to consider gravity induced corrections

for technical purposes (9.81m/s**2) or not?

Could the formula be extended this way?

Power' = Power * (1 + inprod(e_rod, e_grav) * f)

and how could one determine the factor f?
