Heat transfer through different slabs A heat flux, q, of 5000W/m2 is imposed on a 1 cm thick slab with T=140⁰C on the cold side. Tabulate the temperature drop through the slab if it is made of:
Mild steel (0.5% carbon)
Insulation (85% magnesia)
Indicate which situations would be unreasonable and why.
