DETAILED EXPLANATIONS

1. (a)

As the temperature increases, momentum of gas molecules increases due to which collision rate

increases, which ultimately increases the thermal conductivity. While pressure change near atmospheric

condition does not affect thermal conductivity of gas.

2. (c)

Poisson’s equation shows steady state heat conduction with heat generation inside the body.

3. (d)

Consider composite plane wall

T1 T2 T1 T2

k1 Equivalent keq.

k2

So rate of heat transfer for should be same

T1 − T2 T − T2

⇒ q = = 1

δ δ 2δ

δ δ 2δ

⇒ + =

k1A k 2 A keq A

where k eq = equivalent thermal conductivity

4. (c)

For dimension of ‘h ’, as its units W/m2K

Dimension of energy ML2T −2

[Time] × [Length]2 × [Temperature] TL2θ

⇒ Dimension of ‘h ’ is [ML 0 θ–1 T –3 ]

or [Mθ–1T –3]

6. (b)

For same heat flux and temperature difference as

ΔT

Q = kA

δ

⇒ As per given condition

Q k1 k2

AΔT δ1 δ 2

⇒ k 1 = 1 W/mK, δ1 = 50 cm, k2 = 2 W/mK

⇒ δ 2 = ⎜ 2 ⎟ δ1

As given T = 50 + 10x + 5x 2 + 2x 3

∂2T

8. (b)

Geometric radius of a hollow sphere is given by

r = r1 × r2 = 4 × 9 = 6 cm

[where r1 = inner radius; r2 = outer radius]

9. (c)

As k ins = 0.2 W/mK

ho = 4 W/m2K

kins 0.2

⇒ Critical radius of insulation rc = = = 0.05 m = 5 cm

ho 4

10. (d)

As for spherical device critical radius of insulation is given by

2kins

rc = ho

here k ins = 0.1 W/mK

and ho = 5 W/m2K

2 × 0.1

⇒ rc = = 0.04 m = 4 cm

5

So, as radius of the device is greater than critical radius of insulation, os no insulation should be

provided. So option (d) is correct i.e. “no insulation”.

12. (b)

As per Fouriers law:

ΔT

Q = kA

δ

k = thermal conductivity

A = area

ΔT = temperature difference

δ = thickness

ΔT

So from Q = kA

δ

For a given heat flow rate, temperature drop across two surfaces.

Δ T ∝ δ(thickness)

1

ΔT ∝

A

1

and ΔT ∝ [inversely proportional to ‘k ’]

k

So temperature drop will be high if thermal conductivity of wall is less.

T = 177°C

21. (d)

In region ‘D ’ bubbles cover the hot solid surface and forms a blanket. Now as in bubbles gas are filled

and also it occurs at very high temperature so radiation heat transfer dominates over others.

22. (a)

In this case liquid above the hot surface is stagnant and its motion near the surface is due to free

convection.

So as length increases, efficiency decreases.

• Whereas increase in length increases heat transfer area so heat transfer rate will increase which

increases effectiveness of fin.

61. (a)

For surface 1 area = π rs = πr (3 r) = 3π r 2 = A1

For surface 2 area ‘A 2’ = πr 2

⇒ A1 F12 = A2 F21

⇒ (3 π r 2) F12 = πr 2(1)

As F21 = 1

62. (c)

As area of surface 1.

A1 = 2πr 2

for surface 2, πr 2 = A2

From reciprocity relation, A1 F12 = A 2 F21

⇒ As F21 = 1

(2π r 2) F 12 = πr 2(1)

⇒ F12 = 0.5

63. (a)

As Radiosity = Emissive power + Fraction of irradiation that is reflected

J = ε Eb + ρ G

J = εEb + (1 – ε)G [As α + ρ = 1 and α = ε]

⇒ 30 = 0.5 × Eb + (1 – 0.5) × 50

⇒ Eb = 10 W/m2

64. (a)

Emissivity of a body will be equal to its absorptivity only if the body is in thermal equilibrium with its

surrounding.

65. (b)

Total emissive power from a ideal surface in hemispherical direction will be equal to π times of intensity

of radiation.

Mechanical Engineering | Test 3 : Heat and Mass Transfer 23

69. (d)

Assertion is wrong, as in case of steady state heat conduction with constant thermal conductivity in a

plane will if there is heat generation then profile will not be linear. So temperature profile depends not

only on thermal conductivity but also on various other parameters.

k

As thermal diffusivity, α =

ρc

⇒ α ∝ k

i.e. thermal conductivity high = α will be high.

70. (a)

In dropwise condensation when vapour comes in contact of solid surface it get condensed and it does

not wet the surface so no film formation takes place. Liquid drops falls freely and thus plate surface will

be exposed for vapour and free heat transfer takes place.

71. (a)

If thermocouple will have low value of specific heat then it will require low amount of heat to change its

temperature i.e. less time to come in equilibrium with its surroundings and will give quick response.

72. (d)

Prandtl number for mercury is very low and is about 0.025 at 20°C because its thermal conductivity is high.

Pr =

1

or Pr ∝

73. (b)

For fully developed laminar flow through pipe

hL

Nu = , in case of fully developed laminar flow

k

h = constant

⇒ Nu = Constant

While in turbulent flow

Nu = c Re0.8 Pr a

So, here Nusselt number is not constant.

74. (d)

Pk

As fin effectiveness, ∈fin =

hA

For infinitely long fin

1

So, ∈ ∝

h

So, fin will be more effective in a medium having small value of ‘h’. Hence (A) is wrong.

75. (d)

Assertion is wrong. Recuperators are also known as direct transfer type or indirect contact type heat

exchangers in which heat transfer between two fluids takes place through a dividing wall. Reason is correct.
