PROBLEM 2.4 KNOWN: Symmetric shape with prescribed variation in cross-sectional area, temperature distribution and heat rate. FIND: Expression for the thermal conductivity, k. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) One-dimensional conduction in x-direction, (3) No internal heat generation. ANALYSIS: Applying the energy balance, Eq. 1.11a, to the system, it follows that, since ± ± , E E in out = ( ) x q Constant f x . = Using Fourier’s law, Eq. 2.1, with appropriate expressions for A x and T, yields ( ) ( ) x x 2 3 dT q k A dx d K 6000W=-k 1-x m 300 1 2x-x . dx m = − Solving for k and recognizing its units are W/m K, ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 2 -6000 20 k= . 1 x 2 3x 1-x 300 2 3x = + < COMMENTS: (1) At x = 0, k = 10W/m K and k as x 1. (2) Recognize that the 1-D assumption is an approximation which becomes more inappropriate as the area change with x, and hence two-dimensional effects, become more pronounced.
PROBLEM 2.20 KNOWN: Temperature distribution, T(x,y,z), within an infinite, homogeneous body at a given instant of time. FIND: Regions where the temperature changes with time. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Constant properties of infinite medium and (2) No internal heat generation. ANALYSIS: The temperature distribution throughout the medium, at any instant of time, must satisfy the heat equation. For the three-dimensional cartesian coordinate system, with constant properties and no internal heat generation, the heat equation, Eq. 2.15, has the form α 2 2 2 1 T x T y T z T t 2 2 2 + + = . (1) If T(x,y,z) satisfies this relation, conservation of energy is satisfied at every point in the medium.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
