Unformatted text preview: Chapter 9 Natural Convection 9-32 A fluid flows through a pipe in calm ambient air. The pipe is heated electrically. The thickness of the insulation needed to reduce the losses by 85% and the money saved during 10-h are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 3 The local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm. Properties Insulation will drop the outer surface temperature to a value close to the ambient temperature, and possible below it because of the very low sky temperature for radiation heat loss. For convenience, we use the properties of air at 1 atm and 5 ° C (the anticipated film temperature) (Table A-15), 1- 2 5 K 003597 . K ) 273 5 ( 1 1 7350 .

Noting that insulation will cut down obtained to be 29,094 W....
