    An electric current of 200 A is passed through a stainless steel wire having a radius of 0.001268 m. The length of the wire L is 0.91 m and has a resistance of 0.126 ohms. The outer surface temperature Ts is held at 422.1 K. The average conductivity is k=22.5 W/m*K. What is the center temperature?
