4–123 Repeat Problem 4–122 for a copper wire (
8950 kg/m3, Cp 0.383 kJ/kg · °C, k 386 W/m · °C, and
1.13 10 4 m2/s).
4–124 Consider a brick house (k 0.72 W/m · °C and
0.45 10 6 m2/s) whose walls are 10 m long, 3 m high, and
0.3 m thick. The heater of the house broke down one night, and
the entire house, including its walls, was observed to be 5°C
throughout in the morning. The outdoors warmed up as the day
progressed, but no change was felt in the house, which was
tightly sealed. Assuming the outer surface temperature of the
house to remain constant at 15°C, determine how long it would
take for the temperature of the inner surfaces of the walls to
rise to 5.1°C. 15°C 5°C FIGURE P4–124
4–125 A 40-cm-thick brick wall (k 0.72 W/m · °C, and
1.6 10 7 m2/s) is heated to an average temperature of 18°C
by the heating system and the solar radiation incident on it during the day. During the night, the outer surface of the wall is exposed to cold air at 2°C with an average heat transfer coefficient
of 20 W/m2 · °C, determine the wall temperatures at distances
15, 30, and 40 cm from the outer surface for a period of 2 hours.
4–126 Consider the engine block of a car made of cast iron
(k 52 W/m · °C and
1.7 10 5 m2/s). The engine can be
considered to be a rectangular block whose sides are 80 cm,
40 cm, and 40 cm. The engine is at a temperature of 150°C
when it is turned off. The engine is then exposed to atmospheric
air at 17°C with a heat transfer coefficient of 6 W/m2 · °C. Determine (a) the center temperature of the top surface whose
sides are 80 cm and 40 cm and (b) the corner temperature after
45 min of cooling.
4–127 A man is found dead in a room at 16°C. The surface
temperature on his waist is measured to be 23°C and the heat
transfer coefficient is estimated to be 9 W/m2 · °C. Modeling the Computer, Design, and Essay Problems
4–128 Conduct the following experiment at home to determine the combined convection and radiation heat transfer coefficient at the surface of an apple exposed to the room air. You
will need two thermometers and a clock.
First, weigh the apple and measure its diameter. You may
measure its volume by placing it in a large measuring cup
halfway filled with water, and measuring the change in volume
when it is completely immersed in the water. Refrigerate the
apple overnight so that it is at a uniform temperature in the
morning and measure the air temperature in the kitchen. Then
take the apple out and stick one of the thermometers to its middle and the other just under the skin. Record both temperatures
every 5 min for an hour. Using these two temperatures, calculate the heat transfer coefficient for each interval and take their
average. The result is the combined convection and radiation
heat transfer coefficient fo...
