Solution

The correct option is A 1 minute
Let K be the thermal conductivity of each rod.
From conduction law,
Qt=KeqA(θ1θ2)L
where,
Keq= equivalent thermal conductivity
A= cross section area of rods
For fig. (a):
Keq = Harmonic mean of K1 & K2
1Keq=K1+K22K1K2=1K
Keq=K
for fig. (b):
Keq=KA+KAA+A=K
(AM of K1 & K2)
Q1=Q2
K(A)2l(θ1θ2)t1=K(2A)l(θ1θ2)t2
Given, t1=4 min & (θ1θ2)=100C
t2=t14=1 min
Hence, option (a) is the correct answer.
