Rate of heat conduction

A metal bar is used to conduct heat. When the temperature at one end is 100.0 degrees C and at the other is 20.0 degrees C, heat is transferred at a rate of 16 J/s. If the temperature of the hotter end is reduced to 80.0 degrees C, what will be the rate of heat transfer?

Solution Summary

This solution includes calculations for rate of heat transfer through a metal bar.
