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? ...
