Unformatted text preview: linearly independent solution and then show that it is linearly independent. 8. A 4foot long rod is made from a mysterious substance from Uranus, which has thermal diﬀusivity constant α 2 = 2. The initial temperature in the rod is given by the function in Problem 4. The left end of the rod is held at 0 degrees C while the right end is insulated. Write the BVP whose solution u ( x,t ) gives the temperature in the rod at point x and time t ....
