Aluminum cylinder: length 1 m, diameter 1 cm
Current: 1000 A
Conductivity: σ=35 Sm/〖mm〗^2
Linear temperature coefficient: α=3.8∙〖10〗^(3) 1/K
Quadratic temperature coefficient: β=1.3∙〖10〗^(6) 1/K^2
Heat transfer coefficient to the ambient air: λ=1 K/(Wm^2 )
1)• Temperature of the aluminum rod with linear temperature dependency?
2).• Temperature of the aluminum rod with quadratic temperature dependency?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is the current inside the aluminum rod a cause or is it an effect?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if it is a cause, then inside the aluminum rod we have this electric field \({\mathbf{E}}\): \[{\mathbf{j}} = \sigma {\mathbf{E}}\] where \({\mathbf{j}}\) is the current density vector, and \(\sigma\) is the conductivity of aluminum. Furthermore, the power over volume, dissipated in such rod of aluminum is given by the subsequent formula: \[W = \frac{{{{\mathbf{j}}^2}}}{\sigma }\] provided that we are in static condition of electricity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hint: The electrical losses of the aluminum rod P_A transferred via heat to the ambiance can be computed with the temperature at the surface ϑ_S, the ambient temperature ϑ_A, and the surface A with the following equation: P_A=(ϑ_Sϑ_A)/λA

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, thermal energy is: \[dQ = Wdt = \frac{{{{\mathbf{j}}^2}}}{\sigma }dt\] where the magnitude of \({\mathbf{j}}\), is: \[\frac{I}{S} = \frac{I}{{\pi {r^2}}}\] and: \(2r=1\;cm\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I meant \(dQ\) is thermal energy over volume, of course
