An analysis is presented for the title problem based on the governing conservation equations and the measured free-stream temperature variation with time as reported by Levy and Potter. The results compare very favorably with the published data. Several temperature profiles are illustrated which confirm a posteriori the validity of the thin thermal boundary-layer assumption used.
