This example demonstrates the thermal response of two masses connected by a conducting element. The two masses have the same heat capacity but different initial temperatures (T1=100 [degC], T2= 0 [degC]). The mass with the higher temperature will cool off while the mass with the lower temperature heats up. They will each asymptotically approach the calculated temperature T_final_K (T_final_degC) that results from dividing the total initial energy in the system by the sum of the heat capacities of each element.
Simulate for 5 s and plot the variables

Type: Temperature (K)
Description: Projected final temperature
