Calculate Steady-State Temperature

A 0.2 m thick plane wall has its temperature on one side maintained at 50oC and has a thermal conductivity of 15 W/m*k. The other side is exposed to air at 30oC with a convection coefficient of 7... more


Integrating an ODE

ODE: x(dt/dx)=C, where 𝐶 is constant, in the domain 𝑥1 ≤ 𝑥 ≤ 𝑥2, subject to boundary conditions: 𝑇(𝑥1 ) = 𝑇1 and 𝑇(𝑥2 ) = 𝑇2. Find the dimensionless temperature distribution 𝑇(𝑥)−𝑇1 𝑇2−𝑇1 . Looking... more

Integrating something that already has a dx in it

What would integrating both sides of x*(dT/dx)=C in terms of x look like?I keep getting that T(x)=C, but i don't think that's right. boundary conditions: 𝑇(𝑥1 ) = 𝑇1 and 𝑇(𝑥2 ) = 𝑇2 Thank you
Heat Transfer Algebra 2 Mathematics


I need help to solve for T. Not sure how 90 = 0.5454(T - 303) + [(1.6(10^-9))(T^4 - (303^4))]

90 = 0.5454(T - 303) + [(1.6(10^-9))(T^4 - (303^4))]I need to solve for T but dont know how to with the whole T^4
