The Labor Opposition will pursue the Government over the cost of the "ship of death" saga, which ended on Friday when 50,000 Australian sheep at sea for three months began being unloading in Eritrea.

5 Heat Conduction TC TH Q Q
Conduction is heat transfer by means of molecular agitation within a material without any motion of the material as a whole. If one end of a metal rod is at a higher temperature, then energy will be transferred down the rod toward the colder end because the higher speed particles will collide with the slower ones with a net transfer of energy to the slower ones. TC TH conduction though glass Q Q

9 Heat Convection Convection is heat transfer by mass motion of a fluid such as air or water when the heated fluid is caused to move away from the source of heat, carrying energy with it. Convection above a hot surface occurs because hot air expands, becomes less dense and rises (natural or free). Convection assisted by breeze, pump or fan – forced convection. Hot water is likewise less dense than cold water and rises, causing convection currents which transport energy. Convection coefficient, h DT between surface and air way from surface

12 Energy transferred by electromagnetic waves
RADIATION Energy transferred by electromagnetic waves All materials radiate thermal energy in amounts determined by their temperature, where the energy is carried by photons of light in the infrared and visible portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Thermal radiation wavelength ranges: IR ~ m Visible ~ m 800 – 400 nm UV ~ m For exam: more detail than in the textbook

13 Ludwig Boltzmann        ( ) All objects above absolute zero emit radiant energy and the rate of emission increases and the peak wavelength decreases as the temperature of object increases

24 Prad = I A = I 4pRSE2 = (103)(4p)(1.5x1011)2 W = 2.83 x 1026 W
Problem D1: Estimate the Sun’s temperature Assume e = 1 Distance from Sun to Earth:  RSE = 1.5 x 1011 m     Radius of the Sun: RS = 6.9 x 108 m Solar radiation at Earth’s surface: I = 103 W.m-2 s = 5.67 x 10-8 W.m-2.K-4 Solution Power radiated by Sun Prad = I A = I 4pRSE2 = (103)(4p)(1.5x1011)2 W = 2.83 x 1026 W Surface area of the Sun, ASun = 4pRS2 = 5.98 x 1018 m2 T 4 = Prad / (ASun e s )  T = 5.4 x 103 K RS RSE

25 Problem D.2 Estimate the Earth’s surface Temperature TE
(assume NO atmosphere) Solar constant Io= 1360 W.m-2 Earth albedo (reflectivity) aE = 0.3 RSE Earth Power absorbed by Earth: Pabs = (1-aE) AdiskIo Adisk = pRE2 Power radiated by Earth: Prad = AE s TE4 e = 1 Pabs = Prad  TE = 255 K = -18 oC AE = 4pRE2 radiation emitted from the surface of a sphere What is natural greenhouse effect? The Sun, which is the Earth's only external form of heat, emits solar radiation mainly in the form of shortwave visible and ultraviolet (UV) energy. As this radiation travels toward the Earth, 25% of it is absorbed by the atmosphere and 25% is reflected by the clouds back into space. The remaining radiation travels unimpeded to the Earth and heats its surface. The Earth releases a lot of energy it has received from the Sun back to space. However, the Earth is much cooler than the Sun, so the energy re-emitted from the Earth's surface is much weaker, in the form of invisible longwave infrared (IR) radiation, sometimes called heat.

30 Problem D.3 Steel plates are placed on a non-conducting opaque surface, normal to incident solar radiation (direct + diffuse) of 750 W.m-2. Neglecting convection, calculate the equilibrium temperature T for a polished steel plate (e = 0.07) and a dull steel plate (e = 0.8). Assume graybody behaviour. Calculate the effect of coating a steel plate with a selective surface e = l < 2 mm e = l > 2 mm short long

31 e = a Equilibrium: Pabs = Prad
Solution Identify / Setup Pabs = a I A I = 750 W.m-2 e = a Equilibrium: Pabs = Prad Execute The equilibrium temperature is the same for both surfaces – the equilibrium temperature is unaffected by the area and nature of the surface if the emissivity (and absorptivity) remain constant over the range of temperature & wavelength.

32 Assume Sun a blackbody at 5800 K
Absorbed: virtually all the incident radiation lies at < 2 mm thus Pabs = e I A = (0.92)(750)A = 690A Radiated: most of the radiation will be at wavelengths > 2 µm Prad = e s A T4 = 0.1 s A T4 Equil  Pabs = Prad  T = 591 K = 317 oC oC hotter e short long 0.92 0.10 2 mm l

33 Problem D.4 Semester 1, 2007 Examination
An igloo is a hemispherical enclosure built of ice. Elmo’s igloo has an inner radius of 2.55 mm and the thickness of the ice is 0.30 m. This thickness can be considered small compared to the radius. Heat leaks out of the igloo at a rate determined by the thermal conductivity of ice, kice = 1.67 W.m-1.K-1. At what rate must thermal energy be generated inside the igloo to maintain a steady air temperature inside the igloo at 6.5 oC when the outside temperture is -40 oC? Ignore all thermal energy losses by conduction through the ground, or any heat transfer by radiation or convection or leaks.

34 Rate of energy transfer by conduction
Solution Identify / Setup -40 oC thickness t = 0.30 m 6.5 oC kice = 1.67 W.m-1.K-1 radius r = 2.55 m The rate of energy production must be equal to the rate of loss of thermal energy by conduction through the hemispherical ice wall. Rate of energy transfer by conduction

41 Problem D.7 An aluminium pot contains water that is kept steadily boiling (100 ºC). The bottom surface of the pot, which is 12 mm thick and 1.5104 mm2 in area, is maintained at a temperature of 102 °C by an electric heating unit. Find the rate at which heat is transferred through the bottom surface. Compare this with a copper based pot. The thermal conductivities for aluminium and copper are kAl = 235 W.m-1.K-1 and kCu = 401 W.m-1.K-1

42 TC = 100 oC Solution Identify / Setup Base area A = 1.5x104 mm2 = 1.5x10-2 m2 Base thickness L = 12 mm = 12x10-3 m kAl = 235 W.m-1.K-1 kCu = 401 W.m-1.K-1 dT/dx = (TH – TC) / L dQ/dt = ? W TH = 102 oC Execute Al, dQ/dt = 5.9x102 W Cu, dQ/dt = 1.0x103 W Cu pots ~ 2 times more efficient

43 Heat lost by convection is very important for humans
“Body Heat” Heat lost by convection is very important for humans For a naked person, h ~ 7.1 W.m-2.K-1 Assume the person’s surface area is 1.5 m2, skin temperature of 33 oC and surrounding temperature 29 oC. A = 1.5 m2 T = 33 oC TE = 29 oC dQ/dtconvection = h A DT = (7.1)(1.5)(4) W = 43 W If there is a breeze, convection losses are greater – wind chill factor Viscosity of fluids slows natural convection near a stationary surface by producing a boundary layer which has about the same insulating values of 10 mm plywood.

53 Think about * Two different materials at the same temperature have different emissivities. Which one glows the brightest? * Why are fireplace pokers made of iron and not copper? * Some animals have hair which is composed of solid tubular strands, while others have hollow, air-filled tubes.  Where would one more likely find the latter animal:  In cold climates, or warm? * Steel reinforcement bars add stability to concrete walls.  Do they also enhance the insulating value of concrete? * Wind chill factor * Drapes hung close to a cold window

54 * Clothing * Should you lower the blinds and draw the curtains on a hot day? * When one steps from a shower on a cold morning, why does the tile floor seem so much colder than the air? * Place a wooden spoon and a metal spoon in the freezer.  Which will cool faster?  After several hours, what would they feel like? * Why do people become "flushed" when overheated?
