When the temperature of a body at some point is known, it is generally possible to determine the rate of heat input to the surface of the body. However, when the temperatures are determined experimentally, it will be found that there is some uncertainty in the solution for the rate of heat input. It is suggested that a least square method be used to determine the rate of heat input which best fits the experimental data.
