Heat Transfer problem

  1. Oct 14, 2011 #1
    The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The attempt at a solution

    The correct approach is to apply the lumped capacitance method. However, in the lumped capacitance problems I've faced before, it never had a heat generation as it does in this problem.

    How do I go about solving this?

    Think: The block gains heat at a rate of q and losses heat at a rate which is proportional to the temperature difference between itself and the surroundings. Adding heat to a body, what happens to its temperature?
