    Heat flow through a uniform wall will:

    a) increase as the thermal resistance increases

    b) increase as the thickness of the wall increases

    c) decrease as the thermal differences on each side of the wall increases

    d) decrease as the thermal resistance increases

    SOLUTION This solution is FREE courtesy of BrainMass!

    The heat flow through a uniform wall will decrease as the thermal resistance increases.

    This is due to the fact that the thermal resistance is the factor that controls the heat flow through the wall.
    If the thermal resistance is low the heat flow increases. There will be reduction in heat flow if the thermal resistance increases.
