A pond with a flat bottom has a surface area of 860 m2 and a depth of 2.8 m. On a warm day, the surface water is at a temperature of 25°C, while the bottom of the pond is at 12°C. Find the rate at which energy is transferred by conduction from the surface to the bottom of the pond.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Q/t = kA(T hot - T cold )/d              k=2.18W/(m. K)

Q/t = 2.18(860)(25 - 12 )/2.8

Q/t= 11180 watt

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
