CHAPTER1. INTRODUCTION Homework 1 (Due: January 22, 2013) 1.1/1.4/1.18/1.19/1.30 January 10, 2013: General Heat Transfer Concepts What are the physical mechanism associated with heat transfer by conduction, convection and thermal radiation? What is the driving potential for heat transfer? What is the difference between heat flux and heat rate? What are their units? What is the temperature gradient? What are its units? Consider the surface of a solid at an elevated temperature relative to the surroundings, what are the relevant modes of heat transfer for: o Perfect contact with another solid o Flow of a liquid over the surface o Flow of gas over the surface o Exposure to a vacuum What is the inherent difference between the application of conservation of energy over a time interval and at an instant in time? (January 17, 2013) What is thermal energy storage? How does it differ from thermal energy generation? What role do these two terms play in a surface energy balance? (January 17, 2013) January 10 2013: Conduction Heat Transfer What is the relationship of heat flow and temperature gradient? What is thermal conductivity? What are its units? What role does it play in heat transfer? What is Fouriers Law (You should have this memorized)? If heat transfer by conduction through a medium occurs under steady-state conditions, will the temperature at a particular instant vary with location in the medium? Will the temperature of a particular location vary with time? January 10, 2013: Convection Heat Transfer What are the 2 phenomena that make up convection?

What is the difference between natural convection and forced convection? What conditions are necessary for the development of a hydrodynamic boundary layer? What varies across a hydrodynamic boundary layer? What conditions are necessary for the development of a thermal boundary layer? What varies across a thermal boundary layer? If convection heat transfer for a fluid is not characterized by a phase change, what is the nature of the energy being transferred? What is the nature of the energy if there is a phase change? What is Newtons Law of Cooling (you should have this memorized)? What role is played by the convection heat transfer coefficient in Newtons Law of Cooling? What are its units?

What are the units of temperature that must be used with this law? What is emissivity? What role does it play in characterizing thermal radiation heat transfer at a surface? What is irradiation? What are its units? What two outcomes characterize the response of an opaque surface to incident thermal radiation?
