A steel pipe (k = 50 W m-1 K-1) has an internal diameter of 12 cm and thickness 8
mm. The tube is 10 m long and is covered with a layer of insulation
(k = 0.75 W m-1 K-1) of thickness 10 cm. Knowing that the outside temperature of
the insulation is 300 K and the thermal flux from the outside to the environment is
500 W m²², calculate:
The thermal power (i.e., rate of heat transfer) for the entire tube. [4 marks]
The temperature on the outside (T_outer) and inside (T __inner) surfaces of
