The thermal conductivity of steel varies depending on the alloy. (It also varies as the temperature of the metal.) Stainless steels are generally only about a third as thermally conductive as carbon steel. Copper is about ten times as thermally conductive as carbon steel. If a "number" is somehow required for the thermal conductivity (k) of steel, try k = 40 W/m K (at about 25 oC).

How do you use thermal conductivity in a sentence?

Thermal conductivity involves the movement of energy while the as a whole is still. Gases are said to have low thermal conductivity, as they transfer heat poorly. Metals have much better thermal conductivity, as they will heat up and cool down relatively quickly.

Does the thermal conductivity depend on the dimension of the material?

Thermal conductivity is an intensive property. It is inherent in the material but not dependent on the amount of material. This should not be confused with the rate of heat conduction which can depend on the dimensions of a material. There is one case where the thermal conductivity might depend on the dimension of the material - when the conductivity is not uniform with direction, i.e. where conductivity laterally is different from conductivity longitudinally. When the orientation of the material changes the conductivity, the dimensions can have an effect on the apparent bulk thermal conductivity.
