Chapter 1 Basics of Heat Transfer1-102 The convection heat transfer coefficient for heat transfer from an electrically heated wire to air is to be determined by measuring temperatures when steady operating conditions are reached and the electric power consumed. Assumptions 1Steady operating conditions exist since the temperature readings do not change with time. 2 Radiation heat transfer is negligible. AnalysisIn steady operation, the rate of heat loss from the wire equals the rate of heat generation in the wire as a result of resistance heating. That is, &&(QEVI===generatedV)(3 A) = 330 W110D =0.2 cm 240°C L= 1.4 m The surface area of the wire is
