A circular cooling fin of rectangular profile is attached to a cylindrical surface having a temperature T1. Determine
the temperature T2 at the tip of the fin if the fin is surrounded by cooling air at temperature To having a convective
film coefficient h. Figure 162.1 Circular Fin Problem Sketch Material Properties
h = 100 Btu/hr-ft2-°F
