Poisson equation from general heat conduction equation - Heat Transfer

Q.  If the body or element is in steady-state but has heat generation then the general heat conduction equation which gives the temperature distribution and conduction heat flow in an isotropic solid reduces to(∂T/∂x2) + (∂T/∂y2) + (∂T/∂z2) + (q̇/k) = 0. This equation is known as
