Problem 1 In class, a model for the heat transfer to a fully developed laminar flow in a circular tube (radius R) was discussed. The fluid flowing through the tube was presumed to have a thermal conductivity k, a specific heat c p and a mass flow rate m . The heat flux q through the tube wall was assumed uniform. It was shown that the first law, if appropriately written, results in a partial differential equation for the temperature of the fluid, T(r,x) of the form: 1 r r r r T = T x where is the thermal diffusivity, x is the axial distance down the tube, r is the radial coordinate, T is the temperature and is a function of r and x, and is the local velocity. Given that the surface temperature of the pipe is T s (x). a) Please show explicitly (do and show the algebra/calculus) that the temperature distribution in the can be written as T = T s ( x ) 4 q kR 3 R 2 16 r 2 4 r 4 16 R 2 . b) From this, using the definition of bulk temperature and the relation derived in class for the bulk temperature (the enthalpy-averaged temperature) as a function of x, please show that the temperature distribution can be written as T ( r , x ) = T b (0) + q 2 R mc p x + 11 24 qR k 4 q kR 3 R 2 16 r 2 4 + r 4 16 R...
