This article features graphs and curves on the heating and cooling time of spherical bodies, cylinders, and plates so that these developments can be easily traced. In looking at these results, we must keep in mind that many tasks arising in furnace and heating technology, metal-working and metal improvement can be traced back to the heating and cooling of these simple bodies.
