The figure given below shows the variation of temperature across the thickness of materials with different thermal conductivities under steady states. Curve C will be the applicable when thermal conductivity of the material ____
increases with increase in temperature
decreases with increase in temperature
is very large
is constant at all temperatures
On a summer day, a scooter rider feels more comfortable while on the move than while at a stop light because _____.
An object in motion captures less solar radiation
Air is transparent to radiation and hence it is cooler than the body
More heat is lost by convection and radiation while in motion
Air has a low specific heat and hence it is cooler
