I know how to solve a 1-D heat conduction equation when both ends are kept at 0 temperature(using separation of variables and Fourier series.). In the notes, the prof asked us to solve for one end kept at zero and the other insulated (at x=L) and referred to a non-existent chapter in our textbook for the solution. Can someone give me a few pointers on how to proceed? I don't know what to equate U(L,t) to, and that kinda gets u stuck...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
