For flow through a pipe of radius $$R,$$ the velocity and temperature distribution are as follows:
$$U\left( {r,x} \right) = {C_1}$$ and $$T\left( {r,x} \right) = {C_2}\left[ {1 - {{\left( {{r \over R}} \right)}^3}} \right],$$
where $${C_1}$$ and $${C_2}$$ are constants. The bulk mean temperature is given by

$${T_m} = {2 \over {{U_m}{R^2}}}\int\limits_0^R {u\left( {r,x} \right)T\left( {r,x} \right)rdr,}$$
with $${{U_m}}$$ being the mean velocity of flow. The value of $${T_m}$$ is

A
$${{0.5{C_2}} \over {{U_m}}}$$
B
$${0.5{C_2}}$$
C
$${0.6{C_2}}$$
D
$${{0.6{C_2}} \over {{U_m}}}$$

Consider one dimensional steady state heat conduction across a wall (as shown in figure below) of thickness $$30$$ $$mm$$ and thermal conductivity $$15$$ $$W/m.K.$$ At $$x=0,$$ a constant heat flux, $$q'' = 1 \times {10^5}\,\,W/{m^2}$$ is applied. On the other side of the wall, heat is removed from the wall by convection with a fluid at $${25^ \circ }C$$ and heat transfer coefficient of $$250W/{m^2}.K.$$ The temperature (in $${}^ \circ C$$), at $$x=0$$ is ___________
