Question: 159 during its manufacture plate glass at 600c is cooled...

Question details

1.59 During its manufacture, plate glass at 600°C is cooled by passing air over its surface such that the convection heat transfer coefficient is h = 5 w/m2 . K. To prevent cracking, it is known that the temperature gradient must not exceed 15°C/mm at any point in the glass during the cooling process. If the thermal conductivity of the glass is 1.4 W/m K and its surface emissivity is o.8, what is the lowest temperature of the air that can initially be used for the cooling? Assume that the temperature of the air equals that of the surroundings.
