# Is it physically meaningful to talk about the 'total temperature' of an object?

If I had a semi infinite, 1-D object and a finite 1-D object, both heated at the same constant rate at one end each for the same time period and both begin at the same initial temperature, is it physically meaningful for me to integrate along the length of the object and consider this integral as a function of time and a measure of the 'amount' of heat on the object?
