A steel ball of diameter $$60$$ $$mm$$ is initially in thermal equilibrium at $${1030^ \circ }C$$ in a furnace. It is suddenly removed from the furnace and cooled in ambient air at $${30^ \circ }C$$ with convective heat transfer coefficient $$h = 20\,W/{m^2}K.$$ The thermo-physical properties of steel are: density $$\rho = 7800\,\,kg/{m^3},$$ , conductivity $$k = 40 W/mK$$ and specific heat $$c = 600 J/kgK.$$ The time required in seconds to cool the steel ball in air from $${1030^ \circ }C$$ to $${430^ \circ }C$$ is

A spherical steel ball of $$12mm$$ diameter is initially at $$100K.$$ It is slowly cooled in a surrounding of $$300K.$$ The heat transfer coefficient between the steel ball and the surrounding is $$5W/{m^2}K.$$ The thermal conductivity of steel is $$20$$ $$W/mK.$$ The temperature difference between the centre and the surface of steel ball is
A
large because conduction resistance is far high than the convective resistance.
B
large because conduction resistance is far less than the convective resistance.
C
small because conduction resistance is far high than the convective resistance.
D
small because conduction resistance is far less than the convective resistance.
