First off this is not a homework question that i know of. I'm not in school but I had an idea I want to flesh out but I don't have the training to come up with the answer on my own.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Scenario 1:

There are 2 pots of water the 1st at 100 degrees c and a 2nd at 0 degrees.

There is a heat sink going from the middle of the first to the middle of the second.

It takes 10 minutes to for both pots to reach 50 degrees c.

Scenario 2:

There are 3 pots of water the 1st and 2nd at 100 degrees c and the 3rd at 0 degrees.

There is a heat sink connecting all pots just like above.

The question is will it take the same, more or less time to reach 66 degrees c in all 3 pots as it did in Scenario 1.
