Question
A cylindrical steel rod of length 0.10 m and thermal conductivity 50 Wm^{1}K^{1} is welded end to end to copper rod of thermal conductivity 400 Wm^{1}K^{1} and of the same area of cross section but 0.20 m long. The free end of the steel rod is maintained at 100^{0}C and that of the copper rod at 0^{0}C. Assuming that the rods are perfectly insulated from the surrounding the temperature at the junction of the two rods is
