B.Tech IV Year I Semester Examinations, December-2011 TRANSPORT PHENOMENA Time: 3 hours Max. Marks: 80 Answer any five questions All questions carry equal marks --What is transport phenomena? Write the Newtons law of viscosity, Fouriers law of heat conduction and Ficks law of diffusivity and explain why these three laws can be considered analogous. A flat plate 15 m long has an edge facing the flow direction. Air is flowing over the plate at 1000 cm/s. The air properties are = 1.32 gm/lit and = 0.018 cp. Calculate the boundary layer thickness at 125 cm from the leading edge. [10+6] Write short notes on Boundary conditions, their significance, importance and selection. Write short notes on shell balances. [8+8] Derive an equation to calculate the efficiency of a cooling fin.

Two vertical plates are spaced 6mm apart. One is maintained at 1000C and the other at 200C. Air is flowing between plates at a pressure of 1atmosphere and you may assume that the volumetric flow of upward moving stream is same as that of downward moving stream. Evaluate average velocity of air if = 2 106 poise.  Consider the problem of drying of droplets. Derive the equation for diffusion through a spherical shell of raidus r1. The shell is surrounded by a spherical film  of radius r2. Obtain the molar flux for the evaporating component A. Explain the following: a) The partial time derivative b) Total time derivative c) Substantial time derivative d) Navier-stokes equation.
