Unformatted text preview: Chapter 9 Natural Convection 9-110 A group of 25 transistors are cooled by attaching them to a square aluminum plate and positioning the plate horizontally in a room. The required size of the plate to limit the surface temperature to 50 ° C is to be determined for two cases. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties. 3 The local atmospheric pressure is 1 atm. 4 Any heat transfer from the back side of the plate is negligible. Properties The properties of air at 1 atm and the film temperature of ( T s + T ∞ )/2 = (50+30)/2 = 40 ° C are (Table A-15) Transistors, 25 × 1.5 W ε = 0.9 T s = 50 ° C Room 30 ° C Plate L × L 1- 2 5 K 003195 .
