PROBLEM 1.1 KNOWN: Heat rate, q, through one-dimensional wall of area A, thickness L, thermal conductivity k and inner temperature, T1. FIND: The outer temperature of the wall, T2. SCHEMATIC:
ASSUMPTIONS: (1) One-dimensional conduction in the x-direction, (2) Steady-state conditions, (3) Constant properties. ANALYSIS: The rate equation for conduction through the wall is given by Fourier’s law,
q cond = q x = q ′′x ⋅ A = -k
T −T dT ⋅ A = kA 1 2 . dx L
Solving for T2 gives
T2 = T1 −
q cond L . kA
Substituting numerical values, find
T2 = 415$ C -
3000W × 0.025m 0.2W / m ⋅ K × 10m2
T2 = 415$ C - 37.5$ C T2 = 378$ C. COMMENTS: Note direction of heat flow and fact that T2 must be less than T1.
