One-Dimensional Heat Conduction Equation

  • Martin Becker


In Chapter 2, we considered situations that could be treated only by use of Fourier’s Law of heat conduction. In this chapter, we combine Fourier’s Law with the principle of conservation of energy to obtain the heat conduction equation. We then apply the equation to situations involving sources and sinks of energy.
