25  \section{Example 2: One Dimensional Heat Diffusion in an Iron Rod}  Our second example is of a cold iron bar at a constant temperature of $T\hackscore{ref}=20^{\circ} C$, see \reffig{fig:onedhdmodel}. The bar is perfectly insulated on all sides with a heating element at one end keeping the the temperature at a constant level $T\hackscore0=100^{\circ} C$.  As heat is applied; energy will disperse along the bar via conduction. With time the bar will reach a constant temperature equivalent to that of the heat source.

28  The obvious difference between the two problems are the dimensions of the domain and different materials involved. This will change the time scale of the model from years to hours.  The obvious difference between the two problems are the dimensions of the domain and different materials involved.
