how does temperature affect the time it takes to reach thermal equilibrium?

  • physics -

    it depends on the objects. I you are speaking of two liquids, mixed together, the temperature differences have a mimimal effect on time.

    If it is say a solid dropped into a liquid, then the temperature difference increases the time to reach equilibrium

    You have to more specific applications of materials to answer this.
