Homework Help: Which will have a higher temperature?

  1. Nov 15, 2015 #1
    Wood and Copper are heated upto a steady state condition which will have a higher average of temperature at points ?
    Please state your mathematical approach
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Dimensions remain same for both the materials as well as the temperatures both are heated to is the same

    2. Relevant equations
    This is one dimensional heat transfer mainly with a steady state condition

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have tried using Thermal Flux Fourier law as well as the normal GEE but both turned out same
