Please help me with this question.

A cylindrical rod of length L insulated on its lateral surface is initially in contact at one end with a wall at temperature T, and at the other end with a wall at a lower temperature T. The temperature within the rod initially varies linearly with position x according to: T1 -T2 The rod is insulated on its ends and eventually comes to a final equilibrium state where the temperature is T,. Evaluate T, in terms of T, and 72, and show that the amount of entropy generated is: 71 -. In T1 In T2 where c is the specific heat of the rod.
