Chapter 1 Basics of Heat Transfer 1-87E A 200-ft long section of a steam pipe passes through an open space at a specified temperature. The rate of heat loss from the steam pipe and the annual cost of this energy lost are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer by radiation is disregarded. 3 The convection heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the surface.

The rate of evaporation of liquid nitrogen in the tank as a result of the heat transfer from the ambient air is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer by radiation is disregarded. 3 The convection heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the surface. 4 The temperature of the thin-shelled spherical tank is nearly equal to the temperature of the nitrogen inside. Properties The heat of vaporization and density of liquid nitrogen at 1 atm are given to be 198 kJ/kg and 810 kg/m 3 , respectively.

Chapter 1 Basics of Heat Transfer 1-89 A 4-m diameter spherical tank filled with liquid oxygen at 1 atm and -183 ° C is exposed to convection with ambient air. The rate of evaporation of liquid oxygen in the tank as a result of the heat transfer from the ambient air is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer by radiation is disregarded. 3 The convection heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the surface. 4 The temperature of the thin-shelled spherical tank is nearly equal to the temperature of the oxygen inside.
