The Heating and Cooling a Sphere model computes the radial temperature distribution within a sphere as it is heated and cooled by a surrounding fluid. The sphere is broken into shells and the temperature of each shell is computed using a finite difference approximation to the radial heat equation in spherical coordinates. It is a supplemental simulation for an article by William Dittrich in The Physics Teacher (TPT).
