In a power plant, pipes transporting superheated vapor are very common. In a certain plant, superheated vapor is flowing at a rate of 0.3 kg/s inside a 5 cm diameter pipe of 10 m length. The air in the plant is maintained at 20oC while the surface temperature of the pipe is 100oC. If the temperature drop between the inlet and exit of the pipe is 30oC and the specific heat capacity of the vapor is 2190 kJ/kg.K, determine the convective heat transfer coefficient at the pipe surface. If necessary, how could this coefficient be increased?
