Solution:

Ans. (c)
Q =  

 ∴ kdT = constant
or 
Which one has minimum thermal conductivity that will give maximum
temperature drop.

QUESTION: 2

A copper block and air mass having similar dimensions are subjected to symmetrical heat transfer from once face of each block. The other face of the block will be reaching to the same temperature at a rate

Solution:

Copper has higher value of k than air and hence heat flow faster in copper.

QUESTION: 3

Consider the following statements: 
The Fourier heat conduction equation Q = presumes
1. Steady-state conditions
2. Constant value of thermal conductivity.
3. Uniform temperatures at the wall surfaces
4. One-dimensional heat flow. Of these statements:

Solution:

Ans. (d) Thermal conductivity may constant or variable.

QUESTION: 4

Steady two-dimensional heat conduction takes place in the body shown in the figure below. The normal temperature gradients over surfaces P and Q can be considered to be uniform. The temperature gradient  at surface Q is equal to 10 k/m. Surfaces P and Q are maintained at constant temperatures as shown in the figure, while the remaining part
of the boundary is insulated. The body has a constant thermal conductivity of 0.1 W/m.K. The values of and at surface P are:

Solution:

Ans. (d) Heat entry = Heat exit

QUESTION: 5

A plane wall is 25 cm thick with an area of 1 m2, and has a thermal conductivity of 0.5 W/mK. If a temperature difference of 60°C is imposed across it, what is the heat flow?  

Solution:

Ans. (a)

 

QUESTION: 6

Which one of the following expresses the thermal diffusivity of a substance in terms of thermal conductivity (k), mass density (ρ) andspecific heat (c)?   

Solution:

Ans. (c)

QUESTION: 7

Match List-I with List-II and select the correct answer using the codes given below the lists:       

 

Solution:

 

QUESTION: 8

Temperature profiles for four cases are shown in the following figures and are labelled A, B, C and D.


Match the above figures with  
1. High conductivity fluid
2. Low conductivity fluid
3. Insulating body
4. Guard heater

Select the correct answer using the codes given below:


Solution:

Ans. (a) Temperature slope is higher for low conducting and lower for high
conducting fluid. Thus A is for 1, B for 2. Temperature profile in C is for insulator. Temperature rise is possible only for heater and as such D is for guard heater.
