The length of wire PQ in case of A is equal to the diameter of the semicircle formed by the wire CDE, in case B. One pin is attached to each wire with the help of wax as shown in figure. Which pin will fall first? Explain.

As Showing in Images is a Which Pin Will Fall First


The pin on the wire PQ in case A will fall first because the heat will reach to the pin on straight wire PQ before the heat reaches the pin on the semicircular wire CDE in case B.
