Chapter 4 Transient Heat Conduction4-25 An electronic device is on for 5 minutes, and off for several hours. The temperature of the device at the end of the 5-min operating period is to be determined for the cases of operation with and without a heat sink. Assumptions1The device and the heat sink are isothermal. 2 The thermal properties of the device and of the sink are constant. 3The heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the entire surface. PropertiesThe specific heat of the device is given to be Cp= 850 J/kg.°C. The specific heat of the aluminum sink is 903 J/kg.°C (Table A-19), but can be taken to be 850 J/kg.°C for simplicity in analysis. Analysis(a) Approximate solution This problem can be solved approximately by using an average temperature for the device when evaluating the heat loss. An energy balance on the device can be expressed as EEEEQtEtmCTpinoutgenerationdeviceoutgenerationdevice−+=⎯→⎯−+=ΔΔΔ&&ΔElectronic device 30 W or, )(2generation
