Chapter 9 Natural Convection 9-40 A circuit board containing square chips is positioned horizontally in a room. The surface temperature of the chips is to be determined for two orientations. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 3 The local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm. 4 The heat transfer from the back side of the circuit board is negligible. Properties The properties of air at 1 atm and the anticipated film temperature of ( T s + T )/2 = (35+25)/2 = 30 ° C are (Table A-15) Air T = 25 ° C T surr = 25 ° C PCB, T s ε = 0.7 121 × 0.05 W L = 30 cm 1 - 2 5 K 0033 . 0 K ) 273 30 ( 1 1 7282 . 0 Pr /s m 10 608 . 1 C W/m. 02588 . 0 = + = = = × = ° = f T k β υ Analysis The solution of this problem requires a trial-and-error approach since the determination of the Rayleigh number and thus the Nusselt number depends on the surface temperature which is unknown. We start the solution process by “guessing” the surface temperature to be 35
