Name: ___________________________ Page 1 ME 3720B Intro Fluid Thermo Eng – Spring 2008 Sample Final Exam (2 hours 50 minutes) (Open textbook only; use a hand-held calculator) You do not need to follow any specific procedure. Please write brief derivations in the space provided as well as margins. Problem 1. (60 pts) Please pay attention to answer all the questions in each problem. (i) (10 pts) Calculate the heat loss from a person, standing inside a room, by convection and radiation, under the following conditions. The total exposed surface area is 1.6 m 2 with a surface temperature of 29 ° C and emissivity of 0.95. The air temperature is 20 ° C with a natural convection coefficient of 6.0 W/m 2 K. The temperature of the walls is also 20 ° C. Can you determine which one is the dominant mode of heat transfer? (ii) (10 pts) A rod with a length of 1 foot and a diameter of 0.5 inch is made of pure nickel. At steady state, one end is maintained at 325 K and the other at 275 K. Find the thermal conductivity of the rod. What is the thermal resistance of the rod? What is the heat transfer rate along the rod? [Neglect convection and radiation.]
