The method I have given earlier is known as perturbation significance analysis.

Here's a quick answer:
make two dimensionless parameters epsilon=k1/k2 and eta characteristic length tube/characteristic length plate, make sure they are << 1.

Denote them as epsilon and eta.
Now expand both expression you've written in powers of epsilon and eta.
The one with the higher order O(epsilon^n), O(eta^n) is the more accurate.
