Problem.

Temperatures of two similar metal spheres differently fixes in space. The problem which does not need calculations but only a correct understanding of the applied energy distribution.

Two similar metal spheres are located at the same height from the earth surface. The first is pended on the end of a rod and the second is propped up (supported) by the similar rod. Both are heated with the same quantity of heat Q. Will the temperatures of these two spheres be equal? If not, the temperature of which is higher?
