FIND: (a) Relative magnitudes of interfacial heat ﬂuxes, (b) Relative magnitudes of thermal conductivities, and (0) Heat flux as a function of distance x. SCHEMATIC: X ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) One-dimensional conduction, (3) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: (a) For the prescribed conditions (one-dimensional, steady-state, constant k), the parabolic temperature distribution in C implies the existence of heat generation. Hence, since dT/dx increases with decreasing x, the heat ﬂux in C increases with decreasing x. Hence, 61% > £13 However, the linear temperature distributions in A and B indicate no generation, in which case <13 = 015 (b) Since conservation of energy requires that qu = qic and dT/dx)B < dT/dx)c , it follows from Fourier’s law that kB > kc. Similarly, since £15, A = qi’B and dT/dx) A > dT/dx)B, it follows that k A < kB. (0) It follows that the ﬂux distribution appears as shown below.

### 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.
