Heat Equation with Circular Symmetry : Total Heat Energy, Flow of Heat Energy and Equilibrium Temperature Distribution

8. Heat Equation with Circular Symmetry. Assume that the temperature is circularly symmetric:

u u(r,t), where r^2 x^2 | y^2. Consider any circular annulus a ≤ r ≤ b.

a) Show that the total heat energy is r π f^b_a cpurdr.
b) Show that the flow of heat energy per unit time out of the annulus at r b is: (see attachment for equation).
A similar results holds at r = a.
c) Assuming the thermal properties are spatially homogenous, use parts (a) and (b) to derive the circularly symmetric heat equation without sources: (see attachment for equation)
d) Find the equilibrium temperature distribution inside the circular annulus a ≤ r < b if the outer radius is insulated and the inner radius is at temperature T.

Right now I do not have access to a scanner to work this problem through but essentially what you are doing in the proof is looking at Gausses divergence theorem and its equivalent form to a surface in the first part of the proof. I found some lecture notes that go through this step by step plus a derivation of the heat equation for polar coordinates. I will have access to a scanner tomorrow and can work the problem by ...

-Calculate the amount of heat required to heat a 3.5-kg gold bar from 21 degrees celcius to 67 degrees celcius.
-If 57 j of heat are added to an aluminum can with a mass of17.1 g, what is its tem

In the year 2050, very efficient heating systems involving heat pumps are commonly used. When people leave their heated office rooms, heat pumps will pump energy from the vacated rooms to the occupied rooms. Instead of conventional heat pumps where on needs to provide work to pump heat from low temperature to a high temperature

A piece of chromium metal with a mass of 24.26g is heated in boiling water to 98.3C and then dropped into a coffee-cup calorimeter containing 82.3g of water at 23.3C. When thermal equilibrium is reached, the final temperature is 25.6C. Calculate the specific heat capacity of chromium.
You determine that 187 J of heat is requi

Two volumes V1 and V2 of the same incompressible liquid at temperatures T1 and T2 are mixed together in a thermally isolated container. When equilibrium is reached, the mixtures is at a temperature Tmix. If instead a reversible heat engine were operated between the two volumes of liquid until they reached the same temperature, s

Hello, I'm having difficulty figuring out how to work out a rather simple physics problem and would appreciate some guidance. The problem is as follows:
A bottle containing 5.7kg of water at a temperature of 27.3 degrees Celsius is placed in a refrigerator kept at 2.9 degrees Celsius. How much heat is transferred from the wat

An ideal gas mixture consists of 3 kg of Ar and 6 kg of CO2 gases. The mixture is now heated at constant volume from 250 K to 350 K. The amount of heat transfer is:
