end will get hot and why?
Here , the divider is made up of what...?? wood or iron or silver or something else..??


divider will get heated faster because it is made up of silver and silver is the best conductor of heat..
on the other hand the spoon will get heated after the divider because steel is a conductor of heat..
the other two examples plastic scale and pencil has no chance of getting its end heated as they both are poor conductors of electricity...
