i. Subcooled boiling & Saturated boiling

ii. Nucleate boiling & film boiling.

(b) Water at atmospheric pressure is boiled in a Kettle made of copper. The bottom of the Kettle is flat, 35 cm in diameter and maintained at a temperature of 1150C by an electric heater. Calculate the rate of heat required to boil water. Also estimate the rate of evaporation of water from the Kettle.


7. (a) A black body is kept at a temperature of 1000k. Determine the fraction of thermal radiation emitted by the surface in the wavelength band 1.0 to 6.0?.

(b) Estimate the rate of solar radiation on a plate normal to the sun rays. Assume the sun to be a black body at a temperature of 5527 0C. The diameter of the sun is 1.39 × 106 km and its distance from the earth is 1.5 × 108 km.


8. Cold water at 1495 kg/hr enters at 25 0C through a parallel flow heat exchanger to cool 605 kg/hr of hot water entering at 70 0C and leaving at 50 0C. Find the area of heat exchanger the individual heat transfer coefficients on both sides are 1590W/m2-K. Use LMTD and NTU methods. Find also the exit temperature of cold and hot streams if the flow of hot water is doubled. Assume the individual heat transfer coefficient are proportional to 0.8 th power of flow rate.
