Reconsider Prob. 9-18. Using the EES (or other) software, investigate the effect of the plate thermal conductivity on the surface temperature exposed to the cold water. By varying the plate thermal conductivity from 3 to 200 W/m ∙ K, plot the plate surface temperature on the cold water side as a function of the plate thermal conductivity.
Data From problem 9-18
0.2-m-long and 25-mm-thick vertical plate (k = 15 W/m ∙ K) separates the hot water from the cold water. The plate surface exposed to the hot water has a temperature of 100°C, and the temperature of the cold water is 7°C. Determine the temperature of the plate surface exposed to the cold water (Ts,c). The Ts,c has to be found iteratively. Start the iteration process with an initial guess of 53.5°C for the Ts,c.
