Chapter 15 Steady Heat Conduction3-77Hot water is flowing through a 15 m section of a copper pipe. The pipe is exposed to cold air and surfaces in the basement. The rate of heat loss from the hot water and the average velocity of the water in the pipe as it passes through the basement are to be determined. Assumptions1Heat transfer is steady since there is no indication of any change with time. 2 Heat transfer is one-dimensional since there is thermal symmetry about the centerline and no variation in the axial direction. 3 Thermal properties are constant. PropertiesThe thermal conductivity and emissivity of copper are given to be k= 386 W/m⋅°C and ε= 0.7.
