Consider negligible heat diffusion and the initial velocity u is, 0.1 cm/s. The boundary conditions are described below:

**T(x, 0) = 200 x; 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.5**

**T(x, 0) = 200 (1 – x); 0.5 ≤ x ≤ 1**

Develop an algorithm in MATLAB to solve this problem using the first-order approximation in time and the first-order upwind approximation in space. Consider,

*Δx = 0.05 cm; Δt = 0.05.*

The following MATLAB program develops the first-order upwind method to solve the given one-dimensional unsteady hyperbolic convection equation.
