## Question:

A 15-m-long polished copper tube with an outer diameter of 5 cm is submerged in water at 270 kPa. The tube is heated with hot gases flowing through it to generate steam by boiling the water. In the interest of minimizing the excess temperature, determine the surface temperature of the tube that is necessary to achieve a rate of steam generation of 1.5 kg/s. What would be the boiling regime for the steam generation?
