Homework Help: How do i measure thermal conductivity?

  1. Nov 20, 2004 #1
    I need a simple method of measuring thermal conductivity of liquids for a school project. I have access to the school's science labs, so I can get the basic equipments (hopefully). All I need is a method of measuring thermal conductivity.

    There are a lot of different methods for measuring thermal conductivity. One of the easiest to use in measuring a liquid is the modified transient plane source technique developed by Dr. Mathis' company (C-Therm)
