Task 4 – Learning Outcome 1.4

Model engineering situation, formulate differential equations and determine solutions to these equations using power series and numerical methods.

 

  1. During the manufacture of steel component it is often necessary to quench them in a large bath of liquid in order to cool them down. This reduces the temperature of the components to the temperature of the liquid. If T is the temperature of the component in excess of the liquid temperature, the rate of change of the component temperature proportion to the temperature of the component. Take the proportional constant as K.  K depends upon the volume and surface area of the component, its specific heat capacity, and the heat transfer coefficient between the component and the liquid.

 

  1. Formulate a differential equation for the above engineering situation

 

  1. Determine a solution for the formulated formula using numerical method and power series, the initial condition that at t=0 the temperature excess is 2500
