a)      A vertical plate of 700 mm wide and 120 cm height is maintained at a temperature of 95oC in a room at 25oC with an air conditioning with velocity of 36000 cm/min. Calculate the heat transfer coefficient and convective heat transfer rate.

(b)      Two concentric cylinders are located in a large room. Determine the view factors for the two cylinders when the length is 20 cm, the inner radius (r1) is 5 cm and the outer radius (r2) 10 cm. The whole system is in thermal equilibrium.

(c)      A heat exchanger uses oil (cp = 1880 J kg-1 K-1) at an initial temperature of 205°C to heat up water with heat capacity of 1 kcal kg-1 K-1, and density = 0.998 g cm-3, flowing at 0.00376 m3 min-1 from 16°C to 44°C. The configuration of the heat exchanger is in countercurrent. The oil mass flow rate is 270 kg h-1.
(1 cal = 4.18 J)
