Fourier's Law of conduction: Conduction through a Plane Wall (Contact Resistance)

A power transistor dissipates 0.2 W of power steadily in a specific environment. The amount of heat dissipated in 24 H, the surface heat flux and the surface temperature of the resistor are to be determined. h= 18 Wm² C

Solution Summary

In this problem, the amount heat dissipated ,surface heat flux and surface temperature have been calculated by the help of Fourier's law of conduction. The solution is complete and well presented.
