Water (specific heat, $${c_p} = 4.18\,\,kJ/kgK$$ ) enters a pipe at a rate of $$0.01$$ $$kg/s$$ and temperature of $${20^ \circ }C.$$ The pipe, of diameter $$50$$ $$mm$$ and length $$3$$ $$m,$$ is subjected to a wall heat flux $${q_w}$$ in $$W/{m^2}:$$

If $${q_w}$$ $$=5000$$ and the convection heat transfer coefficient at the pipe outlet is $$1000$$ $$W/{m^2}K,$$ the temperature in $$^ \circ C$$ at the inner surface of the pipe at the outlet is

In a parallel flow heat exchanger operating under steady state, the heat capacity rates (product of specific heat at constant pressure and mass flow rate) of the hot and cold fluid are equal. The hot fluid, flowing at $$1kg/sec$$ with $$sp.$$ heat $$= 4kJ/kgK,$$ enters the heat exchanger at $${102^ \circ }C$$ while the cold fluid has an inlet temperature of $${15^ \circ }C$$. The overall heat transfer coefficient for the heat exchanger is estimated to be $$1\,\,kW/{m^2}K$$ and the corresponding heat transfer surface area is $$5{m^2}$$. Neglect heat transfer between the heat exchanger and the ambient.

The heat exchanger is characterized by the following relation $$2\varepsilon = 1 - Exp\left( { - 2NTU} \right).$$ The exit temp (in $$^ \circ C$$) for the cold fluid is
