Two rods of identical dimensions are joined end-to-end, and the ends of the composite rod are kept at $$0^\circ\mathrm{ C}$$ and $$100^\circ\mathrm{ C}$$ (as shown in the diagram). The temperature of the joint is found to be $$40^\circ\mathrm{ C}.$$ Assuming no loss of heat through the sides of the rods, the ratio of the conductivities of the rods $$K_1/K_2$$ is:

1. $$\frac32$$
2. $$\frac23$$
3. $$\frac11$$
4. $$\frac{\sqrt3}{\sqrt2}$$

A rod $$\mathrm{A}$$ has a coefficient of thermal expansion $$(\alpha_A)$$ which is twice of that of rod $$\mathrm{B}$$ $$(\alpha_B)$$. The two rods have length $$l_A,~l_B$$ where $$l_A=2l_B$$. If the two rods were joined end-to-end, the average coefficient of thermal expansion is:
1. $$\alpha_A$$
2. $$\frac{2\alpha_A}{6}$$
3. $$\frac{4\alpha_A}{6}$$
4. $$\frac{5\alpha_A}{6}$$

If the ends of the meter stick are maintained at $$\theta_1$$$$^\circ \text{C}$$ and $$\theta_2$$$$^\circ \text{C},$$ the temperatures measured at the $$25$$ cm and $$80$$ cm marks are observed to be $$35^\circ \text{C}$$ and $$68^\circ \text{C}$$ respectively. Then the temperatures of the left end ($$\theta_1$$$$^\circ \text{C}$$) and the right end ($$\theta_2$$$$^\circ \text{C}$$) are:
 1 $$\theta_{1}=0, ~\theta_{2}=90$$ 2 $$\theta_{1}=10,~\theta_{2}=85$$ 3 $$\theta_{1}=20, ~\theta_{2}=80$$ 4 $$\theta_{1}=30, ~\theta_{2}=100$$

Two liquids flow through a heat exchanger and exchange heat energy.
The first liquid has a mass flow rate $$\Big(\frac{dm}{dt}\Big)=r_1,$$ and its temperature rises by $$\Delta\theta_1.$$ For the second liquid, the flow rate $$\Big(\frac{dm}{dt}\Big)=r_2,$$ and the temperature fall is $$\Delta\theta_2.$$ The ratio of their specific heat capacities is:
1.  $$\frac{\Delta\theta_1}{\Delta\theta_2}$$
2.  $$\frac{r_1}{r_2}$$
3.  $$\frac{r_2\Delta\theta_2}{r_1\Delta\theta_1}$$
4.  $$\frac{r_2\Delta\theta_1}{r_1\Delta\theta_2}$$
