the temperature of the base of the iron.
This is another problem where we ha!e both con!ection and radiation. We compute
each mode of heat transfer then add the two the get the total heat transfer. Here we
know the total heat transfer is (\$\$\$ W& the heat produced b8 the iron. What we do
not know is the surface temperature of the iron. /s usual we assume that the iron is
a small item in a large enclosure to get the equation for radiation heat transfer.
