Chapter 2 Heat Conduction Equation2-65 A large plane wall is subjected to specified heat flux and temperature on the left surface and no conditions on the right surface. The mathematical formulation, the variation of temperature in the plate, and the right surface temperature are to be determined for steady one-dimensional heat transfer. Assumptions1Heat conduction is steady and one-dimensional since the wall is large relative to its thickness, and the thermal conditions on both sides of the wall are uniform. 2Thermal conductivity is constant. 3 There is no heat generation in the wall. PropertiesThe thermal conductivity is given to be k=2.5 W/m⋅°C. Analysis (a) Taking the direction normal to the surface of the wall to be the x direction with x = 0 at the left surface, the mathematical formulation of this problem can be expressed as
