Water ( ρ= 1000 kg/m3; Cp= 4.2 kJ/kg.K; k= 0.58 W/m.K ) at 1,537 kg/hr and 26oC enters a 10-mm-diameter smooth tube whose wall temperature is maintained at 79oC. If the water's Nusselt number (Nu) = 375, and the tube length is 7.6, calculate the water outlet temperature,in oC.

The heat transfer is through the tubular surface and therefore the equivalent diameter is equal to the diameter of the tube.

The Nusselt number is given by the expression:

Substituting the given values;

Next, we will find the LMTD:

Now, we can apply the first law of thermodynamics, i.e., the law of conservation of energy:

Where,

Using this:

This equation cannot be solved analytically, and therefore, needs to be solved numerically.

Using the graphical method, the value of temperature at exit is found as:

FIreclay brick (ρ=2050 kg/m3, cp=960 J/kg-K, k=1.1 W/m-K) with

and cooled in air at 40C with h = 30 W/m2-K. What is the

Water flowing at a rate of 0.667 kg/s (Cp = 4.192
kJ/kg. K) enters a counter current heat exchanger at 318 K and is
heated by an oil stream entering at 393 K at a rate of 2.85 kg/s
(Cp=1.89 kJ/kg. K). The overall U=290 W/m2. K and the area A=20 m2.
Calculate the heat transfer rate and the exit water

A stainless steel ball (? = 8055 kg/m3 ,

A thick steel slab (ρ= 7800 kg/m3, c= 480 J/kg·K, k=

impinging on one of its surfaces. The temperature of the water is
25°C, and the jets maintain an extremely large, approximately
uniform convection coefficient at the surface. Assuming that the
surface is maintained at the temperature of the water throughout
the cooling, how long will it take for the temperature to reach
50°C at a distance of...
