## DLS Group Title Three rods of identical cross sectional area and made from the same material form the sides of an isocles triangle BC right angled at B.The points A&B are maintained at temperature T and Root 2 T respectively.In the steady state,the temperature of the point C is Tc.Assuming only heat conduction takes pace,Tc/T=? one year ago one year ago

Is it: $$Tc/T = \Large \frac {3}{\sqrt 2 +1}$$ ?

3. DLS

yeah..how?

There, thermal resistances are proportional to length of rod. BC and CA are in series. That means that temperature difference is proportional to length of rod. So TB-TC is to BC what TC-TA is to CA
