Heat Transfer: a Plane Wall; Find Maximum Temperature in Wall

A plane wall of thickness 0.1 m and thermal conductivity of 25 W/mL. The volumetric heat generation of the wall = 0.3 MW/m^3. The wall is well insulated on one side while the other side is exposed to a fluid at 92 degrees Celsius with a convection heat transfer coefficient of h=500 W/m^2. What is the maximum temperature in the wall?

Solution Summary

The maximum temperature of a plance wal is calculated given volumetric heat generation and the heat transfer coefficient of a fluid.
