Chapter 2 Heat Conduction Equation2-16The rate of heat generation per unit volume in the uranium rods is given. The total rate of heat generation in each rod is to be determined. AssumptionsHeat is generated uniformly in the uranium rods. g= 7×107W/m3L= 1 mD= 5 cmAnalysisThe total rate of heat generation in the rod is determined by multiplying the rate of heat generation per unit volume by the volume of the rod &&&(/)()(./](GgVgDL===×=×rod325W / m [m)m)1.374 10 W =ππ27471000541137.4 kW2-17The variation of the absorption of solar energy in a solar pond with depth is given. A relation for the total rate of heat generation in a water layer at the top of the pond is to be determined. Assumptions Absorption of solar radiation by water is modeled as heat generation.
