Chapter 7 External Forced Convection 7-27 Solar radiation is incident on the glass cover of a solar collector. The total rate of heat loss from the collector, the collector efficiency, and the temperature rise of water as it flows through the collector are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The critical Reynolds number is Re cr = 5 × 10 5 . 3 Heat exchange on the back surface of the absorber plate is negligible. 4 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 5 The local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm.
