### More efficient way to heat liquids

If we consider two processes to heat up a bucket of water as follows:- Taking one bucket and heating it to our desired temperature for V volume. Taking two buckets of half the volume and heating one ...

### What is temperature as a function of time in Fourier's Law?

Can we find temperature as a function of time using Fourier's Law of thermal conduction? For example: If we have two square parallel plates of a given length, width, and distance apart with one ...
$$k = \frac{\frac{Q}{t}}{A(\frac{T_1 - T_2}{L})}$$ where k is thermal conductivity of the solid, Q is total amount of heat transferred, t is time taken for the heat transfer, A is area of the cross ...
