Chapter 4 Transient Heat Conduction 4-22 Ball bearings leaving the oven at a uniform temperature of 900 ° C are exposed to air for a while before they are dropped into the water for quenching. The time they can stand in the air before their temperature falls below 850 ° C is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The bearings are spherical in shape with a radius of r 0 = 0.6 cm. 2 The thermal properties of the bearings are constant. 3 The heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the entire surface. 4 The Biot number is Bi < 0.1 so that the lumped system analysis is applicable (this assumption will be verified). Properties The thermal conductivity, density, and specific heat of the bearings are given to be k = 15.1 W/m. ° C, ρ = 8085 kg/m 3 , and C p = 0.480 kJ/kg.
