Learn to read stupid. of course, it makes a difference.

Heat transfer rate is generally approximated as proportional
to the temperature difference. A few degrees of difference
will make a few degrees of difference. Why do you waste so
much time with so much anger and emotion (and verbiage)?

"Diffusivity"?? Is that a new coefficient you discovered?

Check out stuff on Central Asia.
