Chapter 1 Basics of Heat TransferAssumptions1 Both the water and the iron block are incompressible substances with constant specific heats at room temperature. 2 The system is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are zero, ΔΔKEPE==0 and EU=. 3 The system is well-insulated and thus there is no heat transfer. Properties The specific heats of water and the iron block at room temperature are Cp, water= 4.18 kJ/kg·°C and Cp, iron= 0.45 kJ/kg·°C (Tables A-3 and A-9). The density of water is given to be 1000 kg/m³. AnalysisWe take the entire contents of the tank, water + iron block, as the system. This is a closed systemsince no mass crosses the system boundary during the process. The energy balance on the system can be
