# is it possible to achieve 1000C temperature in a cabin?

is it possible that if i have a cabin which is insulated from outside but is built with some sort of material like copper and there is a heating element of sort which is providing 100C constantly but because room is totally insulated and shut can the temperature goes upto 1000C or not ? if it is what kind of material can be used other can copper ?

• define "totally insulated"?what material? thickness... Nov 4, 2017 at 21:11
• Insulated by thick layers of mud, from every side and thickness of mud around the cabin would be at least 9 inch. Nov 5, 2017 at 4:48
• The internal temperature will stabilise when the energy input is equal to the energy losses from the outside of your cabin : top, bottom and sides... Nov 5, 2017 at 8:53
• Any particular material which losses less energy to outside meaning more and more heating should be inside? Nov 5, 2017 at 9:14
• What you want isn't called a "cabin". Look up "oven". Nov 6, 2017 at 12:45

If the heating element is constantly at 100°C, there is no way it can cause the room can get warmer than 100°C.

Otherwise, perpetual motion machines would be possible.

If you meant the heating element is providing a constant 100 Watts, then it is possible for the room to get to 1000°C with enough (meaning a lot) of insulation.

Your copper building might weaken to the point of collapse at 1000°C because copper melts at 1083°C.

• Heating element that i am meaning to use is simple pipes and then revolving 100 C water in it just like normal radiators. Nov 5, 2017 at 4:50
• @Davidweb one way to think about this is the 100c heating element would be a cooling element for any room temperature above 100c. Nov 5, 2017 at 16:26
