determine the center temperature of the hot dog after 5, 10, and

infinitely long cylinder. 4–79 Reconsider Problem 4–78. Using EES (or other)
software, investigate the effect of the initial temperature of the ice block on the time period before the ice block
starts melting. Let the initial temperature vary from 26°C to
4°C. Plot the time versus the initial temperature, and discuss
4–80 A 2-cm-high cylindrical ice block (k 2.22 W/m · °C
0.124 10 7 m2/s) is placed on a table on its base of
diameter 2 cm in a room at 20°C. The heat transfer coefficient
on the exposed surfaces of the ice block is 13 W/m2 · °C, and
heat transfer from the base of the ice block to the table is negligible. If the ice block is not to start melting at any point for at
least 2 h, determine what the initial temperature of the ice
block should be.

a cylindrical block whose height and diameter are also 5 cm.
Both blocks are initially at 20°C and are made of granite (k

4–83 A 20-cm-long cylindrical aluminum block (
0.896 kJ/kg · °C, k
236 W/m · °C, and
9.75 10 5 m2/s), 15 cm in diameter, is initially at a uniform
temperature of 20°C. The block is to be heated in a furnace at
1200°C until its center temperature rises to 300°C. If the heat
transfer coefficient on all surfaces of the block is 80 W/m2 · °C,
determine how long the block should be kept in the furnace.
Also, determine the amount of heat transfer from the aluminum
block if it is allowed to cool in the room until its temperature
drops to 20°C throughout.
4–84 Repeat Problem 4–83 for the case where the aluminum
block is inserted into the furnace on a low-conductivity material so that the heat transfer to or from the bottom surface of the
block is negligible.
4–85 Reconsider Problem 4–83. Using EES (or other)
software, investigate the effect of the final center
temperature of the block on the heating time and the amount of
heat transfer. Let the final center temperature vary from 50°C
to 1000°C. Plot the time and the heat transfer as a function of
the final center temperature, and discuss the results. Special Topic: Refrigeration and Freezing of Foods
