A cylindrical steel rod of length and thermal conductivity is welded end to end to copper rod of thermal conductivity and of the same area of cross section but long. The free end of the steel rod is maintained at K and that of the copper rod at K. Assuming that the rods are perfectly insulated from the surrounding, the temperature at the junction of the two rods is :
