LaPlace's Equation in Sphereical Coordinates

  1. Apr 29, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I want to cook a 4" meatball. The meatball is being stored in the fridge at 35 degrees F. The meatball will go into a convection oven at 350 degrees F (surface is maintained at precisely 350 for the duration of cooking). I want to cook the meatball to 130 degrees F (in the center).

    2. Relevant equations

    LaPlacian = 0?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    How do I set it up and start the separation of variables?
