How to Take a Hot Bath, if You Can Spare the CPU Cycles

Thomas Burns*, Southern Oregon University
Jacob Schultz*, Southern Oregon University
Talk Abstract: 
We discuss multiple methods for modelling the temperature of a bathtub taking into account conductance, evaporation, and turbulence. One model uses a system of ordinary differential equations to represent the temperature with respect to time of multiple materials in the system, while another discretizes the space into uniform cubes propagating heat at discrete time steps.
