Assignment on Heat Conduction 1. Write a short note on thermal conductivity and diffusivity 2. Write the heat conduction equations in three dimensional cylindrical and spherical coordinates 3. For a plain wall with uniform heat generation and both the surfaces at same temper- atures, draw the temperature profile and show that the maximum temperature occurs at the center of the wall. 4. Explain critical radius of insulation and its significance. 5. Write a note on insulating materials 6. A glazed window, made of 8 mm thick glass of thermal conductivity 1.5W / m K has its outside surface maintained at 5 C so that frosting is reduced. The surroundings are at -10 C with convective coefficient 55W / m 2 K. the desired condition is attained by providing a uniform heat flux at the inner surface of the window which is fitted into a room where the air temperature is 25 C with convection coefficient of 12.5 W / m 2 K.

### What students are saying

• 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.
