Use paper with four straight edges. 8. Staple together your work. 1. An amount of fine coal powder ( k = 0.2 W/m K) has been stockpiled as the 2-m-deep layer shown in the figure. Due to a reaction between coal particles and atmospheric gases, the layer generates heat volumetrically at the uniform rate ′′′ q = 20 W/m 3 . The coal temperature has reached a steady state. The ambient air temperature is T ∞ = 25ºC, and the heat transfer coefficient at the upper surface of the coal stockpile is h = 5 W/m 2 ⋅ K. Calculate the temperature of the upper surface, T w , and at the insulated surface, T ins . 2.
