Abstract

The temperature gradient at the surface of the Earth is equal to \(\, 0.03~\mathrm{K/m}\). Calculate the temperature in the center of Earth, assuming that it is homogeneous and that the distribution of the heat-emitting radioactive substances is uniform! The thermal conductivity coefficient is \(\, 1~\mathrm{W/mK}\).
