Heat Transfer by Conduction

Equipment:
Isolated Copper rod which is on wooden room with cooling unit and heater.
Temperature controller for the heater.
Four digital thermometers with thermocouple.
Water tank.
Hot plate.
Electrical heater
Connections.

Description

In this experiment, we determine the thermal conductivity of copper rod. The rate of heat transferred through a metal rod depends upon many factors like:
The length of the metal rod.
The cross sectional area of the rod.
The temperature difference between the two ends of the rod.
