Solution

## The correct option is B In the question, we are given that a metallic bar is carrying heat from one of its ends to the other. So, we can write the rate of flow of heat by the formula: dQdt=−kAdθdX Now, in the question, we are told that the metallic box carrying the heat is under a steady state. So the thermal gradient of the rod will be constant. Therefore, we can write −dθdX=C ⇒∫dθ=−∫Cdx ⇒θ=−CX+D So, we can see that the graph will be a straight line and slope will be negative for this plot. Hence, option (b) is correct answer.
