__ Explanation__:

Biot number:

Biot number is defined as the ratio of conductive resistance within the body to convective resistance at the surface.

\({B_i} = \frac{{conductive\;resistance\;within\;body}}{{convective\;resistance\;at\;surface}} = \frac{{h{L_c}}}{k}\)

When Biot number < 0.1, then conductive resistance within the body is negligible which is the condition for the applicability of lumped heat analysis.

In the lumped body, there is no temperature gradient, the temperature is the function of only and only time.
