Write briefly :
Define Thermal conductivity.
What are the different assumptions applied while doing heat conduction analysis?
In case of insulating an electric wire, should the outer radius of insulation be more or less
than the critical radius, briefly explain with reason.

11. What are the three dimensions in case of spherical coordinate system? How they are
12. Derive the relation of temperature distribution and heat transfer for rectangular fin losing
heat at the tip.
13. Prove by dimensional analysis for natural convection that Nusselt no. is a function of
Grashoff no. and Prandtle no.
14. Explain different theories of nucleation.
15. State and explain Kirchoff's law.
16. An electric wire with 2mm diameter is covered with 2.5mm thick layer of insulation with
k = 0.5 W/mK. Heat is dissipated to the atmosphere at 25?C with h=10W/m2K. The wire is
maintained at temperature of 120?C. Estimate the heat dissipation from the wire with and
without insulation. Calculate the thickness of insulation when the heat dissipation rate is
maximum, also maximum value of heat dissipation rate.
17. The A parallel flow, heat exchanger has hot and cold water streams running through it and
has the following data : mh = 10kg/min, mc = 25kg/min, Cph, = Cpc= 4.18 kJ/kg?C,
th1 = 70?C, th2 = 50?C, tc1 = 25?C. Heat transfer coefficients on both sides are 50 W/m2.
a) The area of heat exchanger
b) The exit temperatures of hot and cold fluids if hot water flow rate is doubled.
18. Write short notes on :
a) Hydrodynamic and thermal boundary layer
b) Variable thermal conductivity
NOTE : Disclosure of identity by writing mobile number or making passing request on any
page of Answer sheet will lead to UMC against the Student.
