QUESTION: 1

### What is the thermal conductivity of asphalt in W/m K?

Solution:

Asphalt concrete have three main structural elements i.e. aggregates, binder and the contact layer between them. It is soft at high temperatures but brittle at low temperatures.

QUESTION: 2

### Which one is having highest thermal conductivity?

Solution:

Thermal conductivity of silver is 410 W/m degree while that of copper, glass and earth are 385 W/m degree, 0.75 W/m degree and 0.138 respectively.

QUESTION: 3

### What is the thermal conductivity of magnetite in W/m K?

Solution:

This is having low thermal conductivity because of high intramolecular interactions between their outer edge molecules.

QUESTION: 4
