PROBLEM 4.6 K NOWN: Uniform media of prescribed geometry. FIND: (a) Shape factor expressions from thermal resistance relations for the plane wall, cylindrical shell and spherical shell, (b) Shape factor expression for the isothermal sphere of diameter D buried in n infinite medium. a A SSUMPTIONS: (1) Steady-state conditions, (2) Uniform properties. ANALYSIS: (a) The relationship between the shape factor and thermal resistance of a shape follows from their definitions in terms of heat rates and overall temperature differences. ( ) ( ) t t T q kS T 4.20 , q 3.19 , S 1/ kR R Δ = Δ = = (4.21) Using the thermal resistance relations developed in Chapter 3, their corresponding shape factors are: Plane wall: t R = < L A S . kA L = ( ) Cylindrical shell: 2 1 t 2 1 ln r / r 2 L R S lnr / r . = = π < 2 Lk π ( L into the page ) Spherical shell : t R 1 2 1 2 1 1 1 4 S . 4 k r r l/r l/r = = π π < (b) The shape factor for the sphere of diameter D in an

    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.
