extended periods of subfreezing temperatures. Determine the
minimum depth at which the water main must be placed at a
location where the soil is initially at 15°C and the earth’s
surface temperature under the worst conditions is expected
to remain at 10°C for a period of 75 days. Take the properties of soil at that location to be k 0.7 W/m · °C and

boiling water at 100°C. The heat transfer coefficient at the surface of the hot dog is estimated to be 600 W/m2 · °C. If the hot
dog is considered cooked when its center temperature reaches
80°C, determine how long it will take to cook it in the boiling

metal sheet is moving at a steady velocity of 10 m/min, and the
oil bath is 5 m long. Taking the convection heat transfer
coefficient on both sides of the plate to be 860 W/m2 · °C, determine the temperature of the sheet metal when it leaves the

4–110E In Betty Crocker ’s Cookbook, it is stated that it takes
5 h to roast a 14lb stuffed turkey initially at 40°F in an oven
maintained at 325°F. It is recommended that a meat thermometer be used to monitor the cooking, and the turkey is considered
done when the thermometer inserted deep into the thickest part
of the breast or thigh without touching the bone registers

0.0035 ft2/h.
Assuming the tip of the thermometer is at onethird radial
distance from the center of the turkey, determine (a) the average heat transfer coefficient at the surface of the turkey, (b) the
temperature of the skin of the turkey when it is done, and
(c) the total amount of heat transferred to the turkey in the
oven. Will the reading of the thermometer be more or less than
185°F 5 min after the turkey is taken out of the oven? 4–112 We often cut a watermelon in half and put it into the
freezer to cool it quickly. But usually we forget to check on it
and end up having a watermelon with a frozen layer on the top.
To avoid this potential problem a person wants to set the timer
such that it will go off when the temperature of the exposed
surface of the watermelon drops to 3°C.
Consider a 30cmdiameter spherical watermelon that is cut
into two equal parts and put into a freezer at 12°C. Initially,
the entire watermelon is at a uniform temperature of 25°C, and
the heat transfer coefficient on the surfaces is 30 W/m2 · °C.
Assuming the watermelon to have the properties of water, determine how long it will take for the center of the exposed cut
surfaces of the watermelon to drop to 3°C.
