Chapter 9 Natural Convection 9-77 A vertical plate in water is considered. The forced motion velocity above which natural convection heat transfer from the plate is negligible is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. Properties The properties of water at the film temperature of ( T s + T )/2 = (60+25)/2 = 42.5 ° C are (Table A-15) υ β = 065 10 0 00040 6 . . m/ s K 2 -1 Analysis The characteristic length is the height of the plate L c = L = 5 m.
