## Main Question or Discussion Point

First off I would like to say that this is not a homework question. I am trying to calculate the temperature of a very thin piece of steel.

Assumptions

The underside of the metal is perfectly insulated

To = 20C (initial temperature of material)

Q"=3000W/m^2 (heat flux)

K = 51.9W/m*K (thermal conductivity)

C = .472 KJ/Kg*K ( specific heat)

x = 1mm ( thickness of metal)

t = 0.1s

What I need to know is how to calculate the final temperature at the surface.
