For turbulent flow over a flat plate, the average value of Nusselt number is prescribed by the relation Nu = 0.664 (Re) (Pr) Which of the following is then a false statement? The average heat transfer coefficient increases as a) 1/5 power of plate length b) 2/3 power of thermal conductivity c)
Hi Aspirant ,
The correct answer for the question is OPTION A - 1/5 power of plate length . This is because the average heat transfer co-efficient reduces with length as 1/5th power of length . For laminar flow over a flat plate, the average value of a Nusselt number is prescribed by the relation
Nu = 0.664 (Re) (Pr) , the dynamic viscosity has an inverse relation to 1/6 power. To double the convective heat transfer coefficient, the dynamic viscosity has to be decreased 64 times.
