For my advanced higher physics investigation I've been given the topic of thermal conductivity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Basically I am going to investigate the thermal conductivity of different metals and compare them to the electrical resistance of the metal as I believe that those with low electrical resistance will be good conductors of heat.

I've also been told to find out about the Weidmann-Franz ratio as this is another factor which I can investigate. Searching google hasnt really helped so could someone please give me a bit more information on this?

Thanks,

Michael
