Chapter 9 Natural Convection9-105EThe components of an electronic system located in a horizontal duct of rectangular cross section is cooled by natural convection. The heat transfer from the outer surfaces of the duct by natural convection and the average temperature of the duct are to be determined. Assumptions1Steady operating conditions exist. 2Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 3 The local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm. 4Radiation effects are negligible. 5The thermal resistance of the duct is negligible. PropertiesThe properties of air at 1 atm and the anticipated film temperature of (Ts+T∞)/2 = (160+80)/2 = 120°F are (Table A-15E) 1-23R001724.0R)460120/(1/1723.0Pr/sft101923.0FBtu/h.ft.01576.0=+===×=°=−fTkβυAnalysis(a) Noting that radiation heat transfer is negligible and no heat is removed by forced convection because of the failure of the fan, the entire 180 W heat generated must be dissipated by natural convection, 180 W L= 4 ft Air duct 6 in ×6 in Air 85°F 22 cfm 100°FAir 80°F &&QQ
