Abstract : An exact solution to the heat conduction equation is developed for a solid spherical region subjected to an arbitrary time-independent surface heat flux. It is assumed that the thermal properties are independent of temperature and that no sources or sinks exist in the region. It is shown that the solution is valid for heated, cooled, or thermally insulated regions.
