1 Physics Dec Time Independent Solutions of the Diffusion Equation In some cases we ll be interested in the time independent solution of the diffusion equation Why would be interested in this? Answer: when a system reaches a steady state the temperature distribution must satisfy 2 τ = 0 as well as whatever boundary conditions exist Suppose for example that a high (τ 1 ) and low (τ 2 ) temperature reservoir are connected by a bar with a non-uniform cross section The transport equation applies so J u = K τ If we are in a steady state then any energy entering a thin slab of the bar must leave the other side of the slab at the same rate In other words the energy flux (not flux density) must be constant along the length of the bar So J(x)A(x) constant where x measures position along the bar and A(x) is the cross sectional area at position x This says that approximately τ 1 A(x) As a specific example suppose that the bar is in the form of a truncated cone with A(x) = A 1 (x 2 /x 2 1 ) where A 1 is the cross section at x 1 and x 1 is the value of the x coordinate at the τ 1 end of the bar and x 2 > x 1 is the value of the x coordinate at the τ 2 end of the bar We also suppose that A 1 x 1 Basically we have a bar that is a wedge of a spherical shell of inner and outer radii x 1 and x 2 The temperature distribution must satisfy 2 τ = 0 subject to the boundary conditions which are: the temperature at x 1 is τ 1 the temperature at x 2 is τ 2 and there in no energy flux through the sides of the bar only the ends A little thought shows that if we actually had a complete spherical shell of inner and outer radii x 1 and x 2 at temperatures τ 1 and τ 2 then the flux density would be radial and the solution to this problem would also solve the present bar problem So we want the solutions for 2 τ which are spherically symmetric These are the same as the solutions for a spherically symmetric electric potential in a charge free region We know what these are There can be a point charge at the center of the sphere (Φ = 1/r) and a constant So the temperature as function of x must be A little algebra finds the constants τ(x) = C 1 x + C 2 τ(x) = x 1x 2 (τ 1 τ 2 ) x(x 2 x 1 ) + x 2τ 2 x 1 τ 1 x 2 x 1 Note that τ 1/x 2 as we wanted

2 Physics Dec Continuity Equation for Mass Consider a medium in which the mass density is ρ(r t) and the medium moves with a bulk velocity v(r t) Then the mass flux density at r at time t (we ll drop the explicit notation) is J ρ = ρv Just like other quantities this satisfies a continuity equation or in this case a mass conservation equation which says that mass flux leaving a small volume is just the rate of change of mass in the volume J ρ + ρ = (ρv) + ρ = 0 Sound Waves in a Gas In this section we ll work out the wave equation for sound waves in an ideal gas To start with let s consider a plane wave in the pressure The change in pressure from its equilibrium value is δp = δp 0 e i(k r ωt) where δp 0 is the amplitude of the wave The wave is assumed to be small enough that only first order quantities need to be considered Of course this means that there is a sinusoidally varying pressure gradient which accelerates the gas Suppose there is a pressure gradient in the x direction and consider a small volume of gas in a box with cross sectional area A and length dx Then the net force on the gas in the box is ( p) x A dx The momentum of the gas in the box at time t and position r is ρ(t r)v(t r)a dx The rate of change of this momentum must be the force (Note that we are ignoring viscous forces and assuming smooth flow!) When calculating the rate of change we must note that the box is moving with velocity v so at time dt r r + v dt We cancel out the A dx and take the time derivative and find ρv x + v (ρv x ) = ( p) x or generalizing to a pressure gradient in an arbitrary direction ρv + v (ρv) = p Now in equilibrium ρ is a constant p is a constant and v = 0 When a wave is present all of these have small oscillatory components On the left hand side we can ignore the v (ρv) term altogether since it has two powers of velocity and is second order small In

3 Physics Dec the other term we can ignore the oscillatory wave in ρ since it is multiplied by the first order small velocity To make all this explicit let s write ρ = + δρ p = p 0 + δp v = 0 + δv τ = τ 0 + δτ and so on The quantities prefixed by δ are the small oscillatory quantities and the others are the equilibrium quantities and we will drop products of oscillatory quantities in our expressions In particular the force equation above becomes = (δp) If we have an ideal gas so We also have p = nτ = ρτ m = τ 0 m (δρ) m (δτ) δu + p 0 δv = τ 0 δσ which can be rewritten in terms of unit volume δu V 0 + p 0 V 0 δv = τ 0 δσ V 0 = τ 0 δˆσ where ˆσ is the entropy per unit volume or the entropy density Now divide by dt and remember that because we have an ideal gas the energy density per unit volume is ĈV τ Ĉ V + p 0 (δv ) V 0 = τ 0 (δˆσ) Note also that ρv = constant so δρ/ = δv/v 0 and Ĉ V p 0 (δρ) = τ 0 (δˆσ) Also τ 0 (δˆσ)/ is the heat added per unit volume per unit time This must equal the heat flow which is K 2 (δτ) Note that earlier in deriving the thermal diffusion equation we ignored the p dv term This was OK because p dv work is usually quite small for a solid At this point it may be useful to summarize the equations we ve obtained so far We have the continuity equation for mass which written in terms of our small quantities is (δv) = (δρ)

4 Physics Dec and the force equation and the thermal diffusion equation = τ 0 m (δρ) m (δτ) p 0 (δρ) Ĉ V = D 2 (δτ) Note that D = K/ĈV and the thermal diffusion equation is the same as the one we discussed earlier without the density term What we re going to do is take the time derivative of the continuity equation and the divergence of the force equation This gives a second time derivative equal to a second space derivative which is what we need for a wave equation There is one small problem: both δρ and δτ appear in the equation We use the heat flow equation to relate the two Let s consider this latter relation The time derivative produces (order of magnitude) 1/T where T is the period of the wave The Laplacian produces 1/λ 2 where λ is the wavelength of the wave So the ratio of the right hand side to the left hand side is of order DT λ = D 2 v s λ where v s is the speed of whatever wave we re dealing with that is the speed of sound We know that D is roughly the speed of sound times the mean free path so the ratio of the right hand side to the left hand side is roughly the mean free path over the wavelength of the wave So until we get to very short wavelength waves we can ignore the right hand side and we have p 0 (δρ) = 0 Ĉ V which means δτ = p 0 δρ Ĉ V What we ve just shown is that sound waves (with wavelengths longer than the mean free path) are isentropic The compressed parts of the wave are hotter than the rarefied parts of the wave but the wave goes by so fast that there s no time for heat to flow from a compression to adjacent rarefactions The force equation becomes = τ 0 m (δρ) p 0 Ĉ V m (δρ) ( τ0 = m + n ) 0τ 0 (δρ) Ĉ V m = (ĈV + n 0 )τ 0 Ĉ V m (δρ) = Ĉpτ 0 Ĉ V m (δρ) = γτ 0 m (δρ)

5 Physics Dec We ve used the facts that the heat capacity per unit volume at constant pressure is just Ĉ V + n 0 and the ratio C p /C V is denoted by γ Now we take the divergence of the force equation and we have [ (δv)] = γτ 0 m 2 (δρ) We take the time derivative of the continuity equation [ (δv)] = 2 (δρ) 2 We equate the right hand sides and find the wave equation 2 (δρ) 1 v 2 s 2 (δρ) 2 = 0 where is the speed of sound in the gas v s = γτ0 m Wave Functions for a Sound Wave If we have a harmonic wave in a gas then all the small quantities we ve been discussing look like δρ = δ e i(k r ωt) δp = δp 0 e i(k r ωt) δτ = δτ 0 e i(k r ωt) δv = δv 0 e i(k r ωt) δr = δr 0 e i(k r ωt) where δr(r t) is the displacement of the gas from its equilibrium position Note we re using r as a coordinate that labels where we are and δr as a dynamical variable This is confusing but fairly common practice In any case we haven t introduced δr before It s just δr = δv dt For a complex harmonic wave the differential operators and / are replaced by multiplication by ik and iω respectively The time integral operator is replaced by

6 Physics Dec multiplying by i/ω Given one amplitude all the others are determined by the various equations we ve been dealing with So let s express them all in terms of δp 0 The force equation gives δv 0 = k δp 0 = ωρ ˆk 1 δp 0 = 0 v s ρ ˆk v s δp 0 0 γ p 0 where v s = ω/k and ˆk is a unit vector in the k direction We see that velocity is parallel to the direction of the wave so we have a longitudinal wave With this expression for δv 0 we use the continuity equation to get δ δ = k δv 0 ω = 1 vs 2 δp 0 Using the facts that v 2 s = γτ 0/m and p 0 = τ 0 /m we have v 2 s = γp 0/ and δ = 1 δp 0 γ p 0 which could have been deduced from the isentropic equation for an ideal gas pv γ = Constant We use the thermal diffusion equation to find δτ 0 δτ 0 = p 0 Ĉ V δ = n 0τ 0 Ĉ V δ = τ 0 Ĉ V m δ = τ 0 Ĉ V m Slightly more algebra gives 1 v 2 s δτ 0 = γ 1 δp 0 τ 0 γ p 0 δp 0 = τ 0 m δp 0 = 1 Ĉ V m γτ 0 γĉv which also could have been derived from the isentropic law Finally the displacement is found just by integrating the velocity δr 0 = ˆk iv s δp 0 γω p 0 Note that the pressure density temperature and velocity are all in phase The displacement is 90 out of phase You may recall from Physics 103/5 that a pressure node is a displacement anti-node and vice-versa δp 0

7 Physics Dec Heat Losses in a Wave The equations we developed earlier included the transfer of heat from the compressed hot parts of the wave to the rarefied cool parts of the wave We argued that we could ignore the heat transfer For very short wavelength (high frequency) waves we can t ignore the heat transfer and we need to keep the D 2 δτ term Rather than try to derive a wave equation it s probably easier just to plug the plane wave solutions (as in the previous section) into the various equations We have three equations (continuity force heat transfer) and three unknowns δv 0 δτ 0 and δ The force equation gives iω δv 0 + ik τ 0 m δ + ik m δτ 0 = 0 This tells us that we have a longitudinal wave so we ll just drop the vector symbols on k and δv 0 for now The continuity equation is The thermal diffusion equation is ik δv 0 iωδ = 0 (k 2 D iω)δτ 0 + iω p 0 Ĉ V δ = 0 Now these are homogeneous equations which have a non-trivial solution only if the determinant of the matrix of coefficients is 0 This gives the characteristic equation ( k (k 2 2 ) τ 0 D iω) m ω2 ik 2 ω p 0 mĉv After a fair amount of algebra this can be put in the form ω 2 = k 2 τ 0 Ĉ p + ik 2 K/ω m Ĉ V + ik 2 K/ω = 0 So the equations have a solution provided k and ω satisfy this dispersion relation Note that when the terms containing the thermal conductivity are ignored we get the previous relation between ω and k When they are important we have a complex wave number and an attenuation of the wave resulting from the wave energy being dissipated as heat Some things we ve ignored: If the gas is not monatomic the excitation of the rotational and vibrational modes can get out of phase with the wave In this case energy may be lost to the excitation of these modes This is discussed in K&K but we don t have time
