Find the sphere disposal in the tapered fin shown in Fig. P3.20. Assume that the sphere at the source of the fin is 250OF, the conductivity k = 120 BTu h-I ft-I °F-1 and the film coefficient β =15 Btu h-I ft-2 °F-t, and use three straight elements. The ambient sphere at the top and depth of the fin is T"=75°F.
