    Due to the limitations of this system I have to adapt the format to a standard keyboard; a = alpha, B = beta, k = kappa, v = nu, T0 = T sub zero etc., and x^y means x to the exponent of y.

    (a) Given thickness d = 0.5 cm,
    bottom temperature T0 unknown,
    top temperature T1 = 15 C,
    g = 998 cm/sec^2,
    a = 1.5 x 10^(-4) thermal ...
