the following ﬂuids when it, = 1 m/s: atmospheric A air, water, engine oil, and mercury. In each case the
ﬂuid temperature is 27°C. Experimental results for heat transfer over a flat
plate with an extremely rough surface were found to
be correlated by an expression of the form N “x = 0.0412339 Prl/a Where Mix is the local value of the Nusselt number

15 m/s? (b) What Will be the convection heat transfer coeffi cient for a similar bar with L =, 1 111 when V =
30 m/s? (c) Would your results be the same if the side of the I bar, rather than its diagonal, were used as the
I characteristic length? A thin, ﬂat plate that is 0.2 m by 0.2 m on a side is
oriented parallel to an atmospheric airstream having
a velocity of 40 m/s. The air is at a temperature of
Tm = 20°C. While the plate is maintained at ’1} =
120°C. The air flows over the top and bottom sur
faces of the plate, and measurement of the drag
force reveals a value of 0.075 N. What is the rate of
heat transfer fromboth sides of the plate to the air? ...
