Two metal rods \((1)\) and \((2)\) of the same length have the same temperature difference between their ends. Their thermal conductivities are \({K}_1\) and \({K}_2\) and cross-sectional areas \({A}_{1}\) and \({A}_{2},\) respectively. If the rate of heat conduction in \((1)\) is four times that in \((2),\) then:
1. \(K_1 A_1=4K_2 {A}_2 \)
2. \(K_1 {A}_1=2 {K}_2 {A}_2 \)
3. \(4 {K}_1{A}_1={K}_2 {A}_2 \)
4. \({K}_1 {A}_1={K}_2 {A}_2\)

A slab of stone with an area \(0.36~\text{m}^{2}\) and thickness of \(0.1~\text{m}\) is exposed on the lower surface to steam at \(100​​^{\circ}\mathrm{C}\). A block of ice at \(0^{\circ}\mathrm{C}\) rests on the upper surface of the slab. In one hour \(4.8~\text{kg}\) of ice is melted. The thermal conductivity of the slab will be: (Given latent heat of fusion of ice \(= 3.36\times10^{5}~\text{JKg}^{-1}\))
