##### ii. Guarded hot plate (GHP) method
1. Only (i)
2. Both (i) and (ii)
3. Only (ii)
4. None of the above

#### Option 3: Only (ii)

##### Que.10 Which of the following is time consuming method used for measurement of thermal conductivity?
1. Hot‐wire method (THW)
2. Guarded hot plate method (GHP)
3. Laser flash method
4. Hot‐strip technique

#### Option 2: Guarded hot plate method (GHP)

##### Que.11 Identify the steady state method used for measurement of thermal conductivity.
1. Hot‐wire method (THW)
2. Guarded heat flow meter method
3. Laser flash method
4. Hot‐strip technique

#### Option 2: Guarded heat flow meter method

Explanation:
Among transient methods, the hot‐wire and the laser flash methods are commonly used for measuring the thermal conductivity of different materials.
A modification of the hot‐wire method is the hot‐strip or disk technique, which can be applied to solid non electrically conducting materials in order to measure the thermal diffusivity and conductivity
