Implications Implications Implications of Energy Generation Involves a local (volumetric) source of thermal energy due to conversion from another form of energy in a conducting medium. The source may be uniformly distributed , as in the conversion from electrical to thermal energy (Ohmic heating): 2 g e E I R q = = 2200 2200 (3.38) or it may be non-uniformly distributed , as in the absorption of radiation passing through a semi-transparent medium. ( 29 exp q x α - Generation affects the temperature distribution in the medium and causes the heat rate to vary with location, thereby precluding inclusion of the medium in a thermal circuit. For a plane wall,
