Define the proportionality constants for heat, fluid flow, electricity, and diffusion problems. Know how to compute the rate and flux for heat, fluid flow, electricity, diffusion problems. 2 Rates Critical in Engineering Rate can be defined in two ways conceptually. Rate, r , is the amount a quantity changes per unit time. t time in Change N Quantity in Change t N r Rate = = = Flow Rate Flow r ate, r , is the amount of quantity N that flows by a point in a given length of time. Examples: volumetric flow rate, rate of energy, current t N r = = Rate Flow Water Filling a Tank The volume in the tank changes at a rate, r 1 . The water goes past the pipe outlet at flow rate , r 2 . For this case, because there is no outlet in the tank, the volume changes at the same rate as the water flows in, thus r 1 = r 2 = r....
