    q1 =- K1•A•(ΔT1/Δx1),
    q2 =- K2•A•(ΔT2/Δx2),
    q1=q2, =>
    K1•A•(ΔT1/Δx1)= K2•A•(ΔT2/Δx2),
    ΔT1= 60 –T, ΔT2 = T -10,
    (60 –T)/(T-10) = (K2/K1) •(Δx1/Δx2) =
    =(0.02/400) •(0.02/0.04) = 1•10^-4.
    T =60.001/(1+1•10^-4) = 59.995 degr.
    ΔT1/Δx1 = (60 –T)/Δx1 = 0.005/0.004 =1.25 degr/m,
    ΔT2/Δx2 = (T-10)/Δx2 = 49.995/0.002 =24997.5 degr/m.
