To determine the thermal conductivity of a long, solid 2.5-cm-diameter rod, one half of the rod was inserted into a furnace while the other half was projecting into air at 27°C. After steady state had been reached, the temperatures at two points 7.6 cm apart were measured and found to be 126°C and 91°C, respectively. The heat transfer coefficient over the surface of the rod exposed to the air was estimated to be 22.7 W/m2 K. What is thermal conductivity of the rod?
