Two Objects In Thermal Equilibrium

  1. May 15, 2014 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering, is there any way of calculating the time it takes for two objects in thermal contact to come to thermal equilibrium?

    Yes. It involves solving the transient heat conduction equation, which is a partial differential equation.
