(a) Assuming exact conservation of energy, and assuming that the amount of heat energy flowing out laterally at x per lateral unit area and per unit of time is w ( x,t ), derive the PDE describing the temperature u ( x,t ). (b) Assuming that w ( x,t ) is proportional to the difference of the inside temperature u ( x,t ) and the outside temperature ( x,t ) with positive proportionality factor h ( x ), show that the PDE for u ( x,t ) becomes: c ( x ) ( x ) u t ( x,t ) = x parenleftbigg K ( x ) u x ( x,t ) parenrightbigg + Q ( x,t )- P A h ( x )( u ( x,t )- ( x,t )) , where P is the lateral perimeter. (d) Specialize the previous PDE to the case of a rod with constant thermal properties, without internal heat sources, constant zero outside temperature and constant circular cross section....
