Question: consider a plane wall of thickness 80 mm within which...

Question details

Consider a plane wall of thickness 80 mm within which there is uniform energy generation per unit volume of e = 2 × 106 w/m3. The thermal conductivity of the wall is 85 w/m-K A different fluid passes on either side of the wall so that unequal convection occurs at the two surfaces. Undeir steady conditions, thermocouple measurements reveal that the wall surface temperature on the left side is Ti-150°C, while the wall surface temperature on the right side is T2-100°C. Ifx = 0 represents the centerline of the wall, determine the following a) the x-location of the maximum temperature in the wall (mm) b) the corresponding maximum temperature in the wall (oC) (Hint: See Example 2-20 in C&G, and think about what calculus tells you about finding the maximum or minimum of a function.) 80 mm
