Homework Help: Heated rod problem

  1. Oct 8, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I was asked to write the equation that describes the following heated rod: Two rods of different materials that have been fused together on the x-axis at x=0 to form one rod of infinite length.

    I was thinking of just using the heat equation integrated from -infinity to 0 with k1 and 0 to +infinity with k2 and having the solution as the sum of these two integrals.

    I am really quite unsure of how to go about solving this so any help would be much appreciated.
