Unformatted text preview: ce wall. This rod is welded to the furnace wall and is used as a hanger for supporting instrumentation cables. The exposed surface of the rod is cooled by natural convection by ambient air at 25 oC with convection coefficient h = 20 W/m2K. The length of the rod is much larger than the diameter, so that the exposed portion of the rod can be considered to be an infinitely long fin. (a) Sketch the temperature distribution within the rod from x=0 to x=L. (b) Compute the temperature of the furnace, Tw and the exposed surface temperature of t...
