A house has a composite wall of wood, fiberglass insulation, and plaster board, as indicated on the Steel plates of length L=1 m on a side are conveyed from a heat treatment process and are concurrently picture. On a cold winter day, the convection heat transfer coefficients are ho = 60 W/m²-K and hi = cooled by atmospheric air of velocity Uoo = 10 m/s and in parallel flow over the plates (see 30 W/m²-K. The total wall surface area is 350 m². figure). For a plate temperature of 300 °C, what is the rate of heat transfer from a single plate? (The (kb = 0.038 W/m-K; Ks = 0.12 W/m-K; Kp = 0.17 W/m-K velocity of the air is much larger than that of the plate, i.e., neglect motion of plate) NOTE: please use properties of Air at average temperature between ambient temperature and plate temperatures.
