Question: a nusselt correlation for a sphere has been empirically determined...

Question details

A Nusselt Correlation for a sphere has been empirically determined as: Nu 2+0.6-Repr The researchers report that there is a 5% (of calculated Nu value) uncertainty in the Nu value due to uncertainty associated with the curve fit used to determine this correlation. Use the information in Problem 2 to determine the uncertainty in the Nusselt number calculated from this correlation. You can assume that the pre 0.7 ± 2%. You can use the derivative method or sequential perturbation. What is the dominate term influence the uncertainty of the Nu number? For this calculation you can neglect the uncertainty associate with the diameter of the sphere
