1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1) What is the Equilibrium temperature distributions if α > 0? 2) Assume α > 0, k=1, and L=1, solve the PDE with initial condition u(x,0) = x(1-x) 2. Relevant equations du/dt = k(d^2u/dx^2) - (α*u) 3. The attempt at a solution I got u(x) = [(α*u*x)/2k]*[x-L] for Part#1 but this was told to be wrong Part #2 I got α*u = -2, Also wrong. Any insight how to correct this?
