    A fireclay brick cube, 10 cm in length is removed from a furnace where it was maintained at a temperature of 500 degrees C. The brick cube is then placed in ambient temperature conditions. The heat flow from the brick is 400 Watts. The closest ambient temperature is:

    a) 300 deg C.
    b) 200 deg C.
    c) 100 deg C.
    d) 0 deg C.
