The time it takes for the valve temperature to drop to specified temperatures and the maximum heat transfer are to be determined. Assumptions 1 The thermal properties of the valves are constant. 2 The heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the entire surface. 3 Depending on the size of the oil bath, the oil bath temperature will increase during quenching. However, an average canstant temperature as specified in the problem will be used. 4 The Biot number is Bi < 0.1 so that the lumped system analysis is applicable (this assumption will be verified). Properties The thermal conductivity, density, and specific heat of the balls are given to be k = 48 W/m. ° C, ρ = 7840 kg/m 3 , and C p = 440 J/kg. ° C.

The heat transfer coefficient at the surface of the watermelon and the temperature of the outer surface of the watermelon are to be determined. Assumptions 1 The watermelon is a homogeneous spherical object. 2 Heat conduction in the watermelon is onedimensional because of symmetry about the midpoint. 3 The thermal properties of the watermelon are constant. 4 The heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the entire surface. 5 The Fourier number is τ > 0.2 so that the oneterm approximate solutions (or the transient temperature charts) are applicable (this assumption will be verified)....
