## Homework Statement

Consider a square of unit length which is insulated on the sides x=0, x=1 and y=0 and has the temperature distribution u(x,1)=x along the side y=1. find the temperature distribution u in the square.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I have the boundary conditions:

du(0,y)/dx = 0; du(1,y)/dx = 0; du(x,0)/dx = 0; u(x,1)=x (where these are partial derivatives)

I am unsure where to go from here...do i solve laplaces equation? if so I don't know how to put the boundary conditions in terms of the separation of variables method.

please help!
