A tapered rectangular stainless steel cooling fin dissipates heat from an air-cooled cylinder wall. The wall temperature is Tw, the air temperature is Ta, and the convection coefficient between the fin and the air is h. Determine
the temperature distribution along the fin and the heat dissipation rate q. Figure 98.1 Tapered Fin Problem Sketch Material Properties
