Question

A 1 m outer diameter spherical tank made of AISI 304 steel with
10 cm wall

thickness contains solid iced water at 0°C. Air at 25°C flows
outside the tank with a

velocity of 1 m/s. Determine the rate of heat transfer to the tank
and the mass rate (

m_dot) at which ice melts. Ignore convection effects of the melting
ice.

The latent heat of fusion of water at 0°C is 333.7 kJ/kg.

Thanks!

Answer #1

A spherical tank, 1.5 m in diameter, is maintained at a
temperature of 120 ◦C and exposed to a convection environment with
heat transfer coefficient, h=15 W/m2
◦C and T∞ =20 ◦C. For the same surface
temperature of the tank, it is desired to insulate the tank in
order to decrease the heat loss by 45 percent, determine the
thickness of insulation layer (k=0.2 W/m ◦C ) and the outer surface
temperature.

In a steel spherical reactor with a heat transmission
coefficient (10 + X) W / mK, water is boiled at 350 oC. The inner
diameter of the tank is 80 cm and the wall thickness is (5+ (X /
2)) cm. This tank is insulated with (X) cm thick concrete (k = 2.5
W / mK).
Outdoor heat transfer coefficient (10+ (X)) W / m2K, indoor heat
transfer coefficient is 500 W / m2K. Calculate both surface
temperatures of the...

2.1Consider a solid cylindrical rod of length 0.15 m and
diameter 0.05 m. The top and bottom surfaces of the rod are

An ice chest is constructed of Styrofoam (k =0.033 W/m・◦C) with
inside dimensions of 27 cm x 42 cm x 105 cm. The wall thickness is
5.2 cm. The outside of the chest is exposed to air at 26 ◦C with
convective heat transfer coefficient, h =10 W/m2・◦C. If the chest
is completely filled with ice, estimate the time required for the
ice to completely melt. Write the assumptions used in the
calculation of time. The enthalpy of fusion for...

(28.1) Let’s reconsider the 23.5 kg of silver that we warmed and
then melted in PS#14. (a) In warming the silver its entropy [Choose
One:] increased remained constant decreased . (b) In melting the
silver its entropy [Choose One:] increased remained constant
decreased . (c) By what amount did the entropy of the silver change
while it was melting? [The latent heat of fusion for Ag is 88 kJ/kg
and it melts at TAg = 961 C.] (28.2) A sample...

You are working for a camping gear manufacturer and your boss
has asked you to design a new portable cooler. The portable cooler
will have the shape of a rectangular prism, with a height of 25 cm,
a width of 20 cm and a length of 35 cm. The walls of the cooler
will be composed of a thin inner liner (negligible resistance to
heat transfer), a gap containing water, and an outer insulating
wall having a thickness of 20...

a). A spherical brass shell has an interior volume of 1.65 ×
10-3 m³. Within this interior volume is a solid steel ball that has
a volume of 5.00 × 10-4 m³. The space between the steel ball and
the inner surface of the brass shell is filled completely with
mercury. A small hole is drilled through the brass, and the
temperature of the arrangement is increased by 13 °C. What is the
volume of the mercury that spills out...

A 1-shell-2-tube pass heat exchanger
is made of a steel alloy (thermal conductivity 45.4 W/(m K). It is
used to cool distilled water from 34oC to
29oC using water which flows inside tubes with an outer
diameter of 19 mm and an inner diameter of 16 mm. The number of
tubes in the shell is 160 (80 per pass). The mass flow rate of
distilled water in the shell is 76180 kg/h. The cold water enters
the heat exchanger at...
