Solution

## The correct option is C Both statement 1 and statement 2 are true.In series combination, If A1=A2, l1=l2 keq=2k1k2k1+k2 Since, k1=k2, we get equivalent thermal conductivity =k. In parallel combination, if l1=l2 we get keq=k1A1+k2A2A1+A2 Since, A1=A2 and k1=k2=k, we get keq=k  Suggest Corrections  8      Similar questions  Explore more
