Numerical - Heat transfer through fin - Heat Transfer

Q.  An engine is fitted with pin fins having thermal conductivity k = 200 W/mK. The diameter and length of the fin is 2 cm and 50 cm respectively. Calculate the temperature at 10 cm from the fin base if fine base temperature is 500 0C and fin is in contact with air at 50 0C. Take h = 12 W/m2K
Consider that the fin is infinitely long
