HT01 Linear Heat Conduction

The Linear Heat Conduction HT01 apparatus is well designed to demonstrate the Fourier Rate equation to steady state conduction in one dimension: linear or radial. Since a small variation in thermal conductivity with temperature for metals for the temperature range of interest, we obtain linear variation of temperature in this experiment for steady linear conduction in metal. Hence, the Fourier Rateequation is approved by these experiments.
