Unformatted text preview: problem, we found that a solution of this heat conduction problem is given by u ( x,t ) = X n =1 c n e-n 2 2 2 t L 2 sin nx L , where the coecients c n are chosen so that X n =1 c n sin nx L = f ( x ) = u ( x, 0) for 0 x L. We now know how to nd the sine series for f ( x ) on 0 x L so we are in business! EXAMPLE. Find the solution of the heat conduction problem . 01 u xx = u t , < x < 100 , t > 0; u (0 ,t ) = u (100 ,t ) = 0 , t > 0; u ( x, 0) = 3 sin x-5 sin 4 x + 2 sin 17 x 2 , x 100 . EXAMPLE. Consider the conduction of heat in a rod 80 cm long whose sides are insulated and whose ends are maintained at 0 C for all t > 0. Find an expression for the temperature u ( x,t ) if the initial temperature distribution in the rod is given below. Suppose that 2 = 1. u ( x, 0) = x < 20 30 20 x 60 60 < x 80 HOMEWORK: SECTION 10.5...
