Conductive Cooling

Let us look at an example: Consider a layer of epoxy with a thermal conductivity of 0.15, a thickness of 0.01, and

a cross-sectional area of 1. A heat source on the left-hand side generates a heat load of 100. The surface temperature on the right-hand side is 75. What is the surface temperature on the left-hand side? For the sake of brevity, ignore the units.
