but you said whistler was rife with whores, why do you need to import a specialized kind?

posted by beth at August 12, 2004 10:41 PMwhistler doesn't have so many whores as it does dumb bunnies. and easy bunnies. that was just a little jab cuz i know how much mel loves djs and people who talk about dj'ing.

solve for x.

x = money given exclusively for sex

come on, test the math major with some harder questions.

Consider a one-dimensional rod, 0 <= x <= L. Assume that the heat energy flowing out of the rod at x = L is proportional to the temperature difference between the end temperature of the bar and the known external temperature. Derive an expression for the temperature at point x on the bar at time t.

Bonus question: Derive an expression for the number of children (or dumb bunnies) who get their tongues stuck to the rod as a function of the external temperature.

posted by tim at August 17, 2004 11:41 AMjust a quick bit of info before i solve this one: exactly what type of rod are we referring to here?

posted by mike at August 18, 2004 12:28 AMFeel free to toss in some stuff to account for heat conduction, but let's assume that it's a metal rod that conducts heat very well.

posted by tim at August 18, 2004 11:26 AMcome on, mike, this is a *classic* heat transfer problem!

i was making a lewd reference to "rods" there. and, yes beth, i know this is a classical heat transfer equation -- i paid next to no attention to physics though (i think that's where this was from). from what i remember this dealt with fourier's law (sp?) and partial differentials. if you really want me to solve this, i'll do it just for you beth. or i can just tell you to google it and save me the time :P
