The propagation of heat is one of the basic research topics of thermodynamics, which are generally complex in that it involves mathematical modeling, nonlinear differential equations. However, in a basic level, there are cases that areanalytically and experimentally possible to solve. In this research, students explored experimentally the spatial and temporal evolution of heating a copper rod. A good correlation was found between the solution of the Fourier thermal conductivity, used to describe the evolution of temperature along a metal rod, and the experimental values measured by the students.
