Chapter 9 Natural Convection 9-113 A flat-plate solar collector tilted 40 ° C from the horizontal is exposed to the calm ambient air. The total rate of heat loss from the collector, the collector efficiency, and the temperature rise of water in the collector 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. 4 There is no heat loss from the back surface of the absorber plate. Properties The properties of air at 1 atm and the film temperature of ( T s + T )/2 = (40+20)/2 = 30 ° C are (Table A-15) 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 ( a ) The characteristic length in this case is determined from Solar radiation 650 W/m 2 θ =40 ° Insulation Absorber Plate Glass Cover, 40 ° C 1.5 m δ = 3 cm Outdoors, T = 20 ° C T sky = -40 ° C 2 m 429 . 0 m) 2 + m 2(1.5 ) m 2 )( m 5 . 1 ( = = = p A L s c Then, 8 2 2 5 3 -1 2 2 3 10 100 . 1 ) 7282 . 0 ( ) /s m 10 608 . 1 ( ) m 429 . 0 )( K 20 40 )( K 003311 . 0 )( 40 )(cos m/s 81 . 9 ( Pr ) ( × = × ° = = c s L T T g Ra 87 . 71 ) 10 100 . 1 ( 15 . 0 15 . 0 3 / 1 8 3 / 1 = × = = Ra Nu 2 2 m 3 ) m 2 )( m 5 . 1 ( C .
