Which of the following cylindrical rods of the same material with its ends at the same steady difference of temperature will conduct maximum heat ?
1. Lenght 100 cm & radius 1 cm
2. length 200 cm & radius 1 cm
3. length 400 cm & radius 2 cm

We have, the quantity of heat conducted
Q = K A (t1 - t2)/d
(t1 - t2) is the temperature difference existing ...
