Heat Transfer Questions & Answers  
Question by Student 201427111
Professor, I have a question about emissivity in class. Emissivity means $\frac{emitted-heat-flux}{heat-flux-emitted-if-black} = \frac{q_Grayout}{\sigma T_G^4A}$. I think that heat flux emitted if black is $\sigma T_BA$. therefore i don't know why heat flux emiited if black is $\sigma T_GA$. Is that same $\sigma T_BA = \sigma T_GA$?
Well no, the heat flux emitted if black is $\sigma T_G^4$ because $T_G$ is the temperature of the matter. It doesn't matter if the matter is black or gray. 0.5 point bonus.

Professor, I have a weird question. When I add temperatures, one of them is degree Celsius and another is Kelvin, there are two answers.Firstly, $$0'C+273K=0'C+(273-273)'C=0'C$$ Secondly, $$0'C+273K=(0+273K)+273K=546K=273'C$$ I'm so confused and I do not know which of them is correct. Thank you.
The difference between degrees Celcius is equal to the difference between Kelvin degrees. But not the sum! The sum of 2 temperatures doesn't make sense in heat transfer. Interesting point. 1 point bonus.

Professor, I would like to ask you something I have questions about while studying for the midterm exam.

During the Heat Equation proof process, we assumed that objects were stationary within a given space. But I started to question what would happen if it wasn't stationary.

My personal thoughts are shown in the attached picture.

Do you think there is a mistake? I would also like to ask how the viscous effects should be defined. Thank you.
This is beyond the material you have to cover for the midterm exam. We'll see this in the second half of the course. 0.5 point bonus boost.

Dear Professor,

I have a question about the usage of Heat Equations.
We already studied 2 Types of Heat Equation. (i.e. Derivation form and Integration form)

But, when I used Heat Equation for solve assignments,
I has been confused which one is proper to solve problem.

What is the difference in Derivation form and Integration from?

Well, I think Integration form is more proper to solve problem.
because the term $$\int_s \vec{q“}\cdot \vec{n}dS$$ can express almost all types of heat transfer.

Is it okay to have this idea?

Thank you for reading.
Both equations reflect the exact same physics and assumptions but they are expressed differently. We didn't derive the integral form, we simply obtained it from the differential form. Also, avoid breaking lines for every sentence. In English, you should only break a line between paragraphs, with each paragraph expressing an idea. Because one question is one idea, it should be expressed within one paragraph.

Professor, I have a question about shape of fin.
If the fin shape is like a picture (a) which has double rectangular fin, Can I analize it two fins of single rectangular fins like picture (b) that heat flow is
$$ 2q_{single fin} = q_{double fin} $$ If the analysis is wrong, how can I find the heat flow?
Yes, consider those as two independent fins and sum up the heat transfer.
