JEE Main & Advanced Physics Transmission of Heat Question Bank Topic Test - Transmission of Heat (3-5-21)

  • question_answer
    Two identical plates of different metals are joined  to form a single plate whose thickness is double the thickness of each plate. If the coefficients of conductivity of each plate are 2 and 3 respectively, then the conductivity of composite plate will be

    A) 5

    B) 2.4

    C) 1.5

    D) 1.2

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    Thermal conductivity of composite plate             \[{{K}_{eq}}=\frac{2{{K}_{1}}{{K}_{2}}}{{{K}_{1}}+{{K}_{2}}}=\frac{2\times 2\times 3}{2+3}\]\[=\frac{12}{5}\]=2.4
