Solution Summary

The solution contains a detailed explanation as to how to compare the conductivities of two separate materials from a plot comparing temperature and distance.

Solution Preview

Answer will be (a)
According to Fourier's law of conduction
q = - k* (∆T/∆X)
Where q is the heat transfer per unit area
∆T/∆X = Change in temperature with distance
k ...
