Assignment Help Mechanical Engineering
##### Reference no: EM13947299

Dry air at 35°C and a velocity of 15 m/s flows over a long cylinder of 20-mm diameter. The cylinder is covered with a thin porous coating saturated with water, and an embedded electrical heater supplies power to maintain  the  coating  surface  temperature at 20°C.

(a) What is the evaporation rate of water from the cylinder per unit length (kg/h · m)? What electrical power per unit length of the cylinder (W/m) is required to maintain steady-state conditions?

(b) After a long period of operation, all the water is evaporated from the coating and its surface is dry. For the same free stream conditions and heater power of part (a), estimate the temperature of the surface.

#### Find the metacentric height for rotation

#### Calculate the velocity at the exit of the nossels

The stators in a gas turbine are designed to increase the kinetic energy of the gas passing through them adiabatically. Air enters a set of these nossels at 270 psia and 795 F

#### Find the change in the y direction of the proton.

A proton enters a region where the electric field has a magnitude of 500 N/C and is produced by two charged plates. The length of the plates is .200M. The initial velocity i

#### Calculate the thermal efficiency of the cycle
