The temperature at inside surface of silica brick wall and outside surface of magnesite brick wall are 725°C and 110°C respectively. The contact thermal resistance between the two walls at the interface is 0.0035°C/W per unit wall area. If thermal conductivities of silica and magnesite bricks are 1.7W/m°C and 5.8W/m°C, calculate
i) The rate of heat loss per unit area of walls.

2(b) Derive the formula for rate of heat transfer for an insulated tip fin from the differential equation $$\frac{d^2\theta }{dx^2}-m^2\theta =0$$(10 marks) 3(a) Air at 30°C flows with a velocity of 2.8m/s over a plate 1000 mm (length)×600mm (width)×25mm (thickness). The top surface of the plate is maintained at 90°C. If the thermal conductivity of the palte material is 25W/m°C, calculate: i) heat loast by the plate; ii) bottom temperature of the plate for the steady state condition.

Derive the equation A1F1-2=A2F2-1.(10 marks) 4(b) An electric wire of 0.25mm diameter,ε=0.4 is placed within a tube of 2.5mm diameter, &epsioln;=0.6 having negligible thickness. This tube in turn is placed concentrically within a tube of 5mm diameter, ε=0.7. Annular spaces can be assumed to be evacuated compeletly. If the surface temperature of the outer tube is maintained at 5°C, what must be the temperature of wire so as to maintained the temperature of inner tube at 120°C?(10 marks) 5(a) Derive the expression for log mean temperature difference in a counter flow heat exchanger. State your assumption.(8 marks) 5(b) In a certain double pipe heat exchanger hot water flows at the rate of 50000 kg/hr and gets cooled from 95°C to 65°C. At the same time 50000kg/hr of cooling water at 30°C enters the heat exchanger. The flow conditions are such that overall heat transfer coefficient remains constant at 2270W/m2K. Determine the heat transfer area required and the effecitveness, assuming two streams are in parallel flow.
