Figure P1.55 shows a system consisting of a cylindrical copper rod insulated on its lateral surface while its ends are in contact with hot and cold walls at temperatures 1000°R and 500°R, respectively.
(a) Sketch the variation of temperature with position through the rod, x.
(b) Is the rod in equilibrium? Explain.
Step 1 of 4
We have to plot graph temperature(T) versus distance (x) and we need to explain whether the rod is in equilibrium or not.
