The rate at which heat needs to be removed from the water in order to keep its temperature constant is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The thermal properties of the balls are constant. 2 The balls are at a uniform temperature before and after quenching. 3 The changes in kinetic and potential energies are negligible. Properties The density and specific heat of the brass balls are given to be = 8522 kg/m 3 and C p = 0.385 kJ/kg. C. Analysis We take a single ball as the system.

The rate at which heat needs to be removed from the water in order to keep its temperature constant is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The thermal properties of the balls are constant. 2 The balls are at a uniform temperature before and after quenching. 3 The changes in kinetic and potential energies are negligible.
