When heat flows from one region to another per unit time, the condition for heat current is used,

kA (T H T C )

H= ,(1)

L

where A is the cross-sectional area of the rod, L is the length of the rod, TH and TC are the temperature of its

hotter and colder ends, respectively, and k is a constant known as thermal conductivity, which is the property of the

material that describes its ability to conduct heat. Hence, when heat flows through two different materials that are in

thermal contact, the equation of the heat current at the junction becomes,

k H A H (T H T J ) k C AC (T J T C )

H j= = ,(2)

LH LC

From the equation given the thermal conductivity of a metal, we can compute for the thermal conductivity

of an unknown metal,

k C A C L H ( T J T C )

k H= , ( 3)

LC A H ( T H T J )

For the experiment, the group assumes that the thermal expansion and contraction for each of the material

will be insignificant. The metals used were Brass and Copper with Copper having a thermal conductivity 385

W/m*K and kH is for brass. In this experiment the computed value for the thermal conductivity of Brass can be

compared to the theoretical value of thermal conductivity of Brass using,

Table 2 above shows the thermal conductivity of brass based on five different trials, all of which are computed

through equation 3.

Table 3: Computed Thermal conductivity of Brass

Average kbrass 104 W/m K

Theoretical kbrass 109 W/m K

Percent error 4.56%

Table 3 above shows the average thermal conductivity of Brass from five trials and the comparison between the

experimental value of the thermal conductivity of Brass and its theoretical value using equation 4. Hence, we get a

4.56% error from the theoretical value of thermal conductivity of Brass which is 109 W/m K. This is because by

assuming steady state, thermal expansion and contraction was neglected. Also the metal holding the rods in place

may have played a part in conducting heat and thus contributing to the error. Lastly, the drastic fluctuations in

temperature because of the environment might also contribute while measuring the temperature of the rods.
