Chapter 1 Basics of Heat Transfer1-37EA copper block and an iron block are dropped into a tank of water. Some heat is lost from the tank to the surroundings during the process. The final equilibrium temperature in the tank is to be determined. Assumptions1 The water, iron, and copper blocks 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=. Properties The specific heats of water, copper, and the iron at room temperature are Cp, water= 1.0 Btu/lbm·°F, Cp, Copper= 0.092 Btu/lbm·°F, and Cp, iron= 0.107 Btu/lbm·°F (Tables A-3E and A-9E). AnalysisWe take the entire contents of the tank, water + iron + copper blocks, as the system
