Question

Water at an average temperature of 180°F and an

average velocity of 4 ft/s flows through a thin-walled 3/4 -indiameter

tube. The water is cooled by air that flows across

the tube with a velocity of 12 ft/s at an average temperature

of 80°F. Determine the overall heat transfer coefficient.
