Air is flowing in parallel over the upper surface of a flat plate with a length of 4 m. The first half of the plate length, from the leading edge, has a constant surface temperature of 50°C. The second half of the plate length is subjected to a uniform heat flux of 86 W/m2. The air has a free stream velocity and temperature of 2 m/s and 10°C, respectively. Determine the local convection heat transfer coefficients at 1 m and 3 m from the leading edge. Evaluate the air properties at a film temperature of 30°C. Is the film temperature Tf = 30°C applicable at x = 3 m?
