Name: 2 1. (16 points) A very thick insulating wall of a large chemical reaction chamber is initially at 300 K and has a surface area of 1 m 2 . Once the chemical reaction begins, the interior surface of the wall is suddenly exposed to a temperature of 2000 K for the duration of the reaction. Properties of the wall material are given in the figure. a. What is the temperature of the insulating wall at a depth of x = 5 cm from the surface at the instant of time that is 5 minutes from the start of the reaction? b. What is the rate of energy (W) transferred to the wall at the time instant, t = 5 min? c. Sketch how the temperature profile in the wall will look at various times and label all important features. Chamber Wall Chamber Interior T s = 2000 K A = 1 m 2 x T i = 300 K c p = 800 J/(kg . K) ρ = 1500 kg/m 3 k = 1 W/(m . K)
