both materials. To a good approximation, the bottom may be considered isothermal at T
110 C, which is a desirable feature of pots and pans.

(2) In evaluating the conduction heat fluxes, ( )
x
q x , it is important to recognize that this flux
is in the positive x-direction. See how this convention is used in formulating the energy
alance in part (c). b

(3) It is good practice to represent energy balances with a schematic, clearly defining the
system or surface, showing the CV or CS with dashed lines, and labeling the processes.
eview again the features in the schematics for the energy balances of parts (c & d). R

4) Re-writing the heat diffusion equation introduced in part (b) as

recognize that the term in parenthesis is the heat flux. From the differential equation, note
that if the differential of this term is a constant ( ) q/ k , then the term must be a linear function
f the x-coordinate. This agrees with the analysis of part (e). o

(5) In part (f), we evaluated the rate of energy change stored in the wall at the instant the
volumetric heat generation was deactivated. Did you notice that is the
same value of the deactivated q? How do you explain this?

to use the duct to heat the basement. If not, the duct should be insulated to insure maximum

COMMENTS: (1) Note the great disparity in transition length for the different fluids. Due
to the effect which viscous forces have on attenuating the instabilities which bring about
transition, the distance required to achieve transition increases with increasing . (2) Note the
temperature-dependence of the transition length, in particular for engine oil. (3) As shown in
Example 6.4, the variation of the transition location can have a significant effect on the
average heat transfer coefficient associated with convection to or from the plate.
