Question details

7. An electric resistance heater is embedded in a long cylinder of diameter 30 mm. When water with a temperature of 25°C and velocity of 1 m/s flows crosswise over the cylinder, the power per unit length required to maintain the surface at a uniform temperature of 90°OC is 28 kW/m. When air, also at 25°C, but with a velocity of 10 m/s is flowing, the power per unit length required to maintain the same surface temperature is 400 W/m. Calculate and compare the convection coefficients for the flows of water and air
