## Homework Statement

Hi guys,

I don't really need help with answering the dollowing question but just have a quick question about it.

I solved the first part of the question with an energy balance by letting [itex]q_{conduction}[/itex] = [itex]q_{convection}[/itex] to get the temperature of he outer surface temperature of the wire.

For the heat flux part, why can't the heat flux = [itex]q_{conduction}[/itex] = [itex]q_{convection}[/itex]? Shouldn't the heat flux be constant throughout?

Thanks in advance guys!
