If two heated square have the same material, thickness and are in the same environment, but one has 2m^2 and one has 4m^2 surface area, what rate will each square lose energy as it becomes progressively cooler, and which will reach thermal equilibrium first?
I know that temperature difference is proportional to the rate of energy transfer, but how do i compare the energy loses bbetween the squares as they become cooler?
Thanks
