comment What's the temperature distribution of a plane wall insulated on one side with no internal heat gen.?
So my intuition is wrong, but is my derivation correct in this case? Would the temperature of the wall be a constant temperature that is equal to the temperature of the flowing hot/cold liquid? And yes this problem was assuming that it is not insulated on the top or bottom. There is only insulation on one side and the other side is exposed to the fluid. I guess you could say it is an infinitely long/high wall

comment When do I know if energy stored in an object is 0 or nonzero? (Heat transfer)
@dmckee when it says "steady-state", does that mean that there is or is not energy storage? and if it doesnt explicitly say steady state, how do i determine if there is energy storage or not?
