## Maximum temperature in solid sphere Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
maximum_temperature = Surface temperature+((Internal heat generation*(Radius of Sphere)^2)/(6*Thermal Conductivity))
Tmax = Tw+((qG*(Rs)^2)/(6*k))
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Surface temperature - Surface temperature is the temperature at or near a surface. Specifically, it may refer to: Surface air temperature, the temperature of the air near the surface of the earth. .. (Measured in Kelvin)
Internal heat generation - Internal heat generation is defined as the conversion of electrical, chemical, or nuclear energy into heat (or thermal) energy which leads to a rise in temperature throughout the medium. (Measured in Watt Per Cubic Metre)
Radius of Sphere - Radius of Sphere is a line segment extending from the center of a sphere to the circumference or bounding surface. (Measured in Meter)
Thermal Conductivity - Thermal Conductivity is the rate at which heat passes through a specified material, expressed as the amount of heat that flows per unit time through a unit area with a temperature gradient of one degree per unit distance. (Measured in Watt per Meter per K)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Surface temperature: 300 Kelvin --> 300 Kelvin No Conversion Required
Internal heat generation: 100 Watt Per Cubic Metre --> 100 Watt Per Cubic Metre No Conversion Required
Radius of Sphere: 12 Meter --> 12 Meter No Conversion Required
Thermal Conductivity: 10 Watt per Meter per K --> 10 Watt per Meter per K No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Tmax = Tw+((qG*(Rs)^2)/(6*k)) --> 300+((100*(12)^2)/(6*10))
Evaluating ... ...
Tmax = 540
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
540 Kelvin --> No Conversion Required
540 Kelvin <-- Maximum temperature
