Que. Consider a slab of thickness δ with one side (x = 0) insulated and other side (x = δ) maintained at constant temperature. The rate of uniform heat generation within the slab is q g W/m³. Presuming that the heat conduction is in steady state and one dimensional along x direction, the maximum temperature in the slab would occur at x equal
a. δ/2
b. Zero
c. δ/4
d. δ
Correct Answer:Zero
Ayushi :(March 12, 2022) Because it will act like adiabatic wall also with heat generation..which will make delta= 0 having maximum temperature.
