software, investigate the effects of the heat transfer coefficient and the final plate temperature on the time it will
take for the plate to reach this temperature. Let the heat transfer coefficient vary from 5 W/m2 · °C to 25 W/m2 · °C and the
temperature from 30°C to 200°C. Plot the time as functions of
the heat transfer coefficient and the temperature, and discuss

HEAT TRANSFER diameter are annealed by heating them first to 900°C in a furnace and then allowing them to cool slowly to 100°C in ambient air at 35°C. If the average heat transfer coefficient is
75 W/m2 · °C, determine how long the annealing process will
take. If 2500 balls are to be annealed per hour, determine the
total rate of heat transfer from the balls to the ambient air.
4–24 Reconsider Problem 4–23. Using EES (or other)
software, investigate the effect of the initial temperature of the balls on the annealing time and the total rate of
heat transfer. Let the temperature vary from 500°C to 1000°C.
Plot the time and the total rate of heat transfer as a function of
the initial temperature, and discuss the results.
4–25 An electronic device dissipating 30 W has a mass of
20 g, a specific heat of 850 J/kg · °C, and a surface area of
5 cm2. The device is lightly used, and it is on for 5 min and
then off for several hours, during which it cools to the ambient
temperature of 25°C. Taking the heat transfer coefficient to be
12 W/m2 · °C, determine the temperature of the device at the
end of the 5-min operating period. What would your answer be
if the device were attached to an aluminum heat sink having a
mass of 200 g and a surface area of 80 cm2? Assume the device
and the heat sink to be nearly isothermal. Would you use lumped system analysis or the transient temperature charts when determining the midpoint temperature of
the sphere? Why?
4–33 A student calculates that the total heat transfer from
a spherical copper ball of diameter 15 cm initially at 200°C
and its environment at a constant temperature of 25°C during
the first 20 min of cooling is 4520 kJ. Is this result reasonable? Why?

to treat an actual cylinder as being infinitely long, and when is
it not? For example, is it proper to use this model when finding
the temperatures near the bottom or top surfaces of a cylinder?

a plane wall exposed to convection on both sides be used for a
plane wall with one side exposed to convection while the other
side is insulated? Explain.

using nondimensionalized quantities such as the Biot and
Fourier numbers instead of the actual variables such as thermal
conductivity and time?
