Excellent article on heat pipes! Thank you!
I get the theory pretty well, I think. One thing I haven\'t been able to figure out is what one would expect to measure in practice.
For an ideal heat pipe, would one expect both ends of the pipe to have the same temperature? And, would that temperature be the temp of the heat source?
Or, should I expect to measure a temperature gradient along the pipe?
