Question

Liquid (A) flows down as a thin film over the outside surface of
a vertical flat plate 1.5 m wide (W = 1.5 m) and 3.5 m long (L =
3.5). Inert gas (B) flows across (perpendicular to) the width of
the flat plate at a speed of 5 m/s. The supply of (A) is 0.27 mol/s
at one end of the plate and the flow is considered to be
**turbulent**. The gas composition of (A) at the edge
of the film is 14% and in the bulk 0%.

(B) can be assumed non-diffusing (NB = 0). The system is
**not** dilute.

Viscosity of liquid (A), μA = 0.0000161 Pa×s = 1.61x10-5 Pa×s
Diffusion coefficient of A through B, DAB = 1x10-5 m2/s Density of
A, rA = 1.2 kg/m3

Total concentration, c = 44 mol/m3

**How many meters of the plate will be dry from (A)? ‘show
your working out’**

Answer #1

Air at free-stream velocity of 9 m/s flows over a thin flat
plate of length 3 m and width 1.5 m. A laminar boundary layer
develops from the leading edge of the flat plate. At Rex = 500 000,
the boundary layer becomes a turbulent boundary layer where x is
the distance from the leading edge. ρair = 1.2 kg/m3 , μair = 1.8 x
10-5 kg/m.s (a) Estimate the length of the laminar boundary layer.
(b) Estimate the drag...

A Newtonian liquid of density 2400 kg
m-3 flows down under gravity in steady, laminar
conditions over an inclined flat plate at an angle of 30° to the
horizontal plane. The thickness of the film can be taken as
constant. The velocity distribution across the liquid film is given
by:
ux=
(ρgδ/μ)y(1-y2/δ)sinθ
where ux= velocity
in the x-direction along the plate, r = density
of liquid, g = gravitational acceleration,
d = liquid film thickness, m = viscosity of

Liquid water at velocity of 2 m/s and temperature of
15 °C flows over a flat plate. The plate has a width of 1 m, length
of 0.4 m and surface temperature of 37 °C.
Determine:
(a) the average heat transfer coefficient.
(b) the convection heat transfer rate from the top surfacc of the
platc.

A grey body is one whose absorptivity
