My book is fairly explicit when it comes to solving problems with rods of uniform temp, and fins that have a heat source at one end but I have a couple of HW problems that deal with rods.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) A rod connected to 1 hot wall

given:

Wall temp

environment temp

dia. and length of rod

heat reansfer coef. between rod and wall

find:

heat transfer

2) Rod connected between two hot walls of different temps

given:

temp of both walls

dia and length of rod

heat transfer coef.

find:

heat loss in watts

Can anyone get me pointed in the right direction? I really don't know where to start since the rods ar not of uniform temp.

Thanks
