PROBLEM 3.1 KNOWN: One-dimensional, plane wall separating hot and cold fluids at T and T ,1 ,2 , respectively. FIND: Temperature distribution, T(x), and heat flux, ′′ q x , in terms of T T h ,1 ,2 1 , , , h 2 , k and L. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Constant properties, (4) Negligible radiation, (5) No generation. ANALYSIS: For the foregoing conditions, the general solution to the heat diffusion equation is of the form, Equation 3.2, ( ) 1 2 T x C x C . = + (1) The constants of integration, C 1 and C 2 , are determined by using surface energy balance conditions at x = 0 and x = L, Equation 2.23, and as illustrated above, ( ) ( ) 1 ,1 2 ,2 x=0 x=L dT dT k h T T 0 k h T L T . dt dx = = (2,3) For the BC at x = 0, Equation (2), use Equation (1) to find ( ) ( ) 1 1 ,1 1 2 k C 0 h T C 0 C + = + (4) and for the BC at x = L to find ( ) ( ) 1 2 1 2 ,2 k C 0 h C L C T . + = + (5) Multiply Eq. (4) by h 2 and Eq. (5) by h 1 , and add the equations to obtain C 1 . Then substitute C 1 into Eq. (4) to obtain C 2 .

PROBLEM 3.2 KNOWN: Temperatures and convection coefficients associated with air at the inner and outer surfaces of a rear window. FIND: (a) Inner and outer window surface temperatures, T s,i and T s,o , and (b) T s,i and T s,o as a function of the outside air temperature T ,o and for selected values of outer convection coefficient, h o . SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) One-dimensional conduction, (3) Negligible radiation effects, (4) Constant properties. PROPERTIES: Table A-3 , Glass (300 K): k = 1.4 W/m K. ANALYSIS: (a) The heat flux may be obtained from Eqs. 3.11 and 3.12, ( ) ,i ,o 2 2 o i 40 C 10 C T T q 1 L 1 1 0.004m 1 h k h 1.4 W m K 65W m K 30 W m K − − ′′ = = + + + + ( ) 2 2 50 C q 968W m 0.0154 0.0029 0.0333 m K W ′′ = = + + . Hence, with ( ) i ,i ,o q h T T ′′ = , the inner surface temperature is 2 s,i ,i 2 i q 968W m T T 40 C 7.7 C h 30 W m K ′′ = = = < Similarly for the outer surface temperature with ( ) o s,o ,o q h T T ′′ = find 2 s,o ,o 2 o q 968W m T T 10 C 4.9 C h 65W m K ′′ = = − = < (b) Using the same analysis, T s,i and T s,o have been computed and plotted as a function of the outside air temperature, T ,o , for outer convection coefficients of h o = 2, 65, and 100 W/m 2 K. As expected, T s,i and T s,o are linear with changes in the outside air temperature. The difference between T s,i and T s,o increases with increasing convection coefficient, since the heat flux through the window likewise increases. This difference is larger at lower outside air temperatures for the same reason.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
