I recently found this answer about the diffusion equation (nice one actually), but have one doubt about the temperature dependence of this formula. If the "packet" of energy (terminology suggested ...
The background: I'm doing some simulation work involving the diffusion equation in 1D. Specifically I have some temperature profile, constant thermal conductivity and fixed temperature at each end of ...
What's the temperature distribution of a plane wall insulated on one side with no internal heat gen.?
Let's say we have a plane wall that is insulated on one side, exposed to a fluid on the other side, and has no internal heat generation. Would the shape of the temperature distribution be a constant? ...
