Therefore, the flow is turbulent and the entry lengths in this case are roughly m 4 . m) 04 . ( 10 10 = = ≈ ≈ D L L t h which are much shorter than the total length of the pipe. Therefore, we can assume fully developed turbulent flow in the entire pipe. Assuming the copper pipe to be smooth, the Nusselt number is determined to be 1 . 277 96 . 1 062 , 98 023 .

Therefore, the convection thermal resistance inside the pipe is negligible, and thus the inner surface temperature of the...
