(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

determine the steady state equation for the given heat equation and boundary conditions

2. Relevant equations

U_{t}=U_{xx}-4(U-T)

U(0,T)=T U(4,T)=0 U(x,0)=f(x)

3. The attempt at a solution

I put U_{t}=0

so 0=U_{Inf}''-4(U_{inf}-T)

then once I tried to integrate I ended up with a U_{inf}thats impossible to isolate is there a specific method used for this kind of heat equation?
