As you may recall from class, the solution to the 2D axisym metric heat/diffusion equation is c t ( r, t ) = summationdisplay ( a J ( r ) + b Y ( r )] e 2 Dt . (1) We did not get too much into depth as to what these Bessel Functions look like or how we could use them. Today we will start. Well consider diffusion out of a cylinder of radius 1. We must first use the boundary conditions to decide what the a and b s are. First if you plot Y ( r ) you will notice that it blows up at r = 0. We do not expect an infinite concentration so we can usually discard all of the b...
