Example 12-2 A plate of size 1 ft by 2 ft is maintained at 135°F. One side is insulated and the other exchanges heat by natural convection with air at 65°F. Calculate h if the plate is held horizontally with the hot side up and also if the plate is held with the hot side down. Solution: Use the correlations in Table 12-3 on p. 603.
