The general solution to this heat equation problem is u ( x,t ) = X n =1 c n e- 100 n 2 2 t sin nx. Looking at the initial condition, we must have u ( x, 0) = X n =1 c n sin nx = sin2 x- sin5 x. If two sums of sine functions with similar inputs are equal, then the coefficients must be equal. I.e. c 1 = 0 since there is no sin x term on the right hand side, c 2 = 1, c 5 =- 1, and c i = 0 for i 6 = 2 or 5. So our final solution is u ( x,t ) = e- 400 2 t sin2 x- e- 2500 2 t sin5 x. 10.5.10 Consider the conduction of heat in a rod 40 cm in length whose ends are maintained at 0 C for all t > 0. Find an expression for the temperature u ( x,t ) if the initial temperature is the function u ( x, 0) = x, for 0 x < 20 , 40- x for 20 x 40 ....
