One end of a U-shaped metal rod is immersed in boiling water and the other in cold water. From the warming of the cold water qualitative and quantitative statements can be made about the influence of the rod's composition, length and diameter on the heat flow through it. Since the performance of the experiment is time consuming, the individual measurements should be carried out by different groups of students: a least 4 teams should be formed. Each team performs the experiment with only one rod; for the evaluation the results of all the groups are pooled.
