__________2. Two walls of cold storage plant are composed of an insulating material (k = 0.25
kJ/hr-m-C), 100 mm thick at the outer layer and material (k = 3.5 kJ/hr-m-C), 15 cm thick at
inner layer. If the surface temperature at the cold side is 30C and hot side is 250C, find the
heat transmitted per square meter.

3,000 kg/hr per cylinder at rated load and speed. This air is drawn in through a filter by a
centrifugal compressor directly connected to the exhaust gas turbine. The temperature of the
air from the compressor is 145C and a counter flow air cooler reduces the air temperature to
45C before it goes to the engine suction header. Cooling water enters air cooler at 30C and
leaves at 38C. Calculate the log mean temperature difference.
