temperature of the pipes is 165C, determine (a) the rate of heat
transfer from the hot gases to water, (b) the rate of evaporation, (c)
the ratio of the critical heat flux to the present heat flux, and (d) the
surface temperature of the pipe at which critical heat flux occurs.

When the side opening is closed with aluminum foil, the entire heat lost by the coal bricks must be
gained by the stakes since there will be no heat transfer through a reradiating surface. The grill can be
considered to be three-surface enclosure. Then the rate of heat loss from the room can be determined

Chapter 13, Problem 24
Repeat Problem 1323 by assuming a 2-mm-thick layer of limestone (k = 1.3 W/m C) forms on the
outer surface of the inner tube.
Chapter 13, Problem 23
A long thin-walled double-pipe heat exchanger with tube and shell diameters of 1.0 cm and 2.5 cm,
respectively, is used to condense refrigerant 134a by water at 20C. The refrigerant flows through the
tube, with a convection heat transfer coefficient of h

= 5000 W/m

C. Water flows through the shell at a
rate of 0.3 kg/s. Determine the overall heat transfer coefficient of this heat exchanger. Answer: 2020

Chapter 13, Solution 24
Refrigerant-134a is cooled by water in a double-pipe heat exchanger. The overall heat transfer
coefficient is to be determined.
Assumptions 1 The thermal resistance of the inner tube is negligible since the tube material is highly
conductive and its thickness is negligible. 2 Both the water and refrigerant-134a flows are fully
developed. 3 Properties of the water and refrigerant-134a are constant. 4 The limestone layer can be
treated as a plain layer since its thickness is very small relative to its diameter.

Chapter 13, Problem 63
A shell-and-tube heat exchanger with 1-shell pass and 20tube passes is used to heat glycerin (C
p
= 2480
J/kg C) in the shell, with hot water in the tubes. The tubes are thin-walled and have a diameter of 1.5 cm
and length of 2 m per pass. The water enters the tubes at 100C at a rate of 5 kg/s and leaves at 55C. The
glycerin enters the shell at 15C and leaves at 55C. Determine the mass flow rate of the glycerin and the
overall heat transfer coefficient of the heat exchanger.
Chapter 13, Solution 63
Glycerin is heated by hot water in a 1-shell pass and 13-tube passes heat exchanger. The mass flow rate
of glycerin and the overall heat transfer coefficient of the heat exchanger are to be determined.
Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The heat exchanger is well-insulated so that heat
loss to the surroundings is negligible and thus heat transfer from the hot fluid is equal to the heat transfer
to the cold fluid. 3 Changes in the kinetic and potential energies of fluid streams are negligible. 4 There
is no fouling. 5 Fluid properties are constant.
Properties The specific heats of water and glycerin are given to be 4.18 and 2.48 kJ/kg.C, respectively.
Analysis The rate of heat transfer in this heat exchanger is
